Spam does have a purpose after all.

Comment spam (WordPress) (again)

I wrote recently about a solution to comment-spam. It’s stopped a whole load of rubbish but has also stopped some of yours (legit) comments. Sorry about this – once they’ve been trapped, there doesn’t seem to be a way of releasing them. Hopefully it’ll be ok from now on.

WordPress spam killer: Spam Karma

If you’re reading this, use WordPress, and suffer from the latest craze in spamming (comment-spam) – get Spam Karma. I had been using Spaminator, but lately it wasn’t doing its job. Spam Karma has blocked nearly 100 spam in 12 hours; brilliant.

Comment spam (WordPress)

Anyone who blogs using WordPress, you’ve probably been trampled over by comment spammers. (I’ve had 300 in 12 hours…) Just found this Spaminator (“Kitten’s Spaminator“) which so far works well.

Happy New Year to all.
