Comment Spam

Posted on Monday 12 December 2005

Well today, about 8 hours ago, I got my first comment spam on this new blog telling people to go and “Order Phentermine”. Well no more I say! I have altered the options a bit for WordPress, any comment containing more than 5 links will be held for moderation, as opposed to the 10 links it was previously. Also, anyone commenting who does not already have a pre-approved comment will have it held for moderation. I would have to assume that it would use email addresses for this, so hopefully this will keep all spammers out.

If this keeps the spam down (and here’s hopin’ it does) then I may raise the link limit back up to 10, because 5 might be a little bit cramped.

    Holy crap, I’m glad I took some preventative measures, I just got 3 new spam comments in the past 7 hours. Two telling people to buy viagra and another for sex toys.

    These people just have no decency.
