Comment Spam and WP-SpamFree

Filed under: Miscellaneous — Tags: , , , — Dennis @ 10:16 am

I’m tired of comment spam. I guess my blog has grown to a popular enough size that I’m known by just enough bots to make things annoying.

The next plugin I’ll be trying out is WP-SpamFree. If you can’t post a comment, use my contact form to let me know there is an issue.

WP-SpamFree uses a JavaScript and Cookie based approach to break the bots out there. Apparently, it’s pretty successful but I don’t have any experience with it yet. I’ll post an update to this post when I have more input. I’m hopefully optimistic that I’ll be deleting less comment spam from now on.

Update I haven’t had a single comment spam since I installed the plugin.
