Tsunami of Spam

I’m suddenly getting a lot more comment spam slipping past my spam filter so I just switched on comment moderation.

I’m suddenly getting a lot more comment spam slipping past my spam filter so I just switched on comment moderation. You’ll get a note saying your comment needs to wait on approval (but that sexual favors offered should speed this approval process).

But please, comment early, comment often. Show me the love. Me Love You Long Time.

  1. Moderate the spam, faster service for sexual favors… Hmmm. You’ll have to let me know if this works. I could use some sexual favors.
    Oh. Wait. You meant offering…
    Hm… Well, gee whiz, Karl. you just got pierced…:D

  2. Does MT have one of those neat-o comment verification applets like Blogger uses? It’s one of those graphics things where it shows a bunch of distorted letters which you then need to type in in order to submit a comment. I turned on that feature in Blogger and my comment spam dropped to almost nothing, instantly. Haven’t had one since….

  3. Gregg, I hate the graphic verification thing – I imagine eventually someone will write a plugin to do that, or MT will add it, but they generally rely on a blacklist system that looks up spammers and won’t accept posts from them. It works reasonably well, but fails now and then when spammers get clever.

    You can also use outside comment systems like haloscan.

    But I’m ok with the moderation. And when the girls start sending me panties as payment, I’ll be even happier with it.
