Comment Spammers

Filed under: Computing — jasony @ 6:40 pm

Oh, for a Spam verification test on Word Press! I currently have a blacklist of words that are disallowed in WP, but for some reason the program is ignoring my blacklist. Just today I received 113 spam comments (so far). I don’t have the time or inclination to wade through and see if there are any legitimate comments. I just nuked them all with a wave of my magic moderation wand.

If I can’t get the blacklist working I’m just going to shut off all comments completely. This is so frustrating! All I need is a simple human-checker (graphic file, whatever) but WP doesn’t include that. What’s up with that?

I can get a plug-in for it, but so far even if I install one and click “activate” it has not effect on the comment field. I don’t know enough to make it work.

Dang it. Sorry if I nuked your comments. May spammers all rot.
