Comment spam sucks

Posted by Swaroop C H on January 2, 2005 Filed under: blogging, tech

Forgive me for the ironic title, but I am getting spammed non-stop by some adult sites. I checked my mail today morning and I see more than 228 new comments on my site!! I had to delete them all by hand. Aah, the pains of becoming popular ;)

I immediately installed Dr Dave's Spam Karma plugin for WordPress and it's been working like a charm ever since. In less than an hour since its installation, it is eaten up more than 214 spam comments!

Dr Dave, more good karma for you :)

Yeah..even I got some online poker comment spam. Thankfully vanished after I enable comment moderation.
Will try that plug-in if things get worse for me again!

Spam Karma is very effective. It has rejected 882 spam comments till now!!
