If you’ve been blogging for a while you will have noticed how the spam community (if I may call it that) arbitrarily posts its sticking crud to your blog as comments. Lord knows why they bother. But a pain in the butt they are to boot!
I’ve been manually dealing with this for a while, deleting anywhere from 1 to 10+ pages (yes pages) daily from the comments awaiting moderation on my blog.
Today I created a WordPress account, got an API key and installed AKISMET anti-spam plugin. It seems to be the best one, is free unless you’re making wads-o-cash from your blogging and is written by one of the WordPress gurus, so should be pretty robust I would think.
I’ll let you know how it goes and goodbye you stinking spammer turds, I flush you down my blog toilet!
