Return of the Spam

Afternoon watch, 8 bells (4:22 pm)

Well you may remember my recent change to comments on this blog. I thought I'd follow up and show you how this has affected the system:
akismet spam statistics

Fortunately, my anti-spam comment measures are capturing what is now getting through, so I think I'll leave it as is for now…

  1. Just put in a simple/fake captcha or something. I haven't had Java installed on my machine for years. i.e., looks like you need something in place, but I think Java was toooo much protection 😉

    WordPress has Akismet for anti-spam, which picks up pretty much every bad comment before it goes public. It's much better than it was years ago when I implemented the Java stamp stuff. I used to have zero moderation, now I have a tiny bit—I can live with that.
