Hit by comment spam

February 27th, 2006

Both of my blogs were hit today by comment spam. I have now installed Spam Karma, so hopefully that won’t be happening again. I have received a number of spam comments in the past, but they were all sent to moderation because they had more than 2 links. This one had only 1 link, and it showed up in about 10 posts.

    I use the Spam Karma plugin to filter out the comment spam on my WordPress blogs. It is quite effective, eliminating 99% of the comment spam. Email spam is a different thing. I use the Obfuscate E-mail plugin on some of my sites to protect any email addresses used on the site. It changes the email address to a combination of hex and ascii codes that (hopefully) will prevent the harvest bots from finding the email addresses.

    I hope this helps!
