blocking comment spam

I’m getting bored of moderating comment spam so I’m trying the simple hack described in detail here. It’s no extra work for the commenter. Hidden values ensure that is where the comment came from the form rather than a direct link, used by many bots.

I’l let you know how successful it is. Hopefully I’ll be able to turn moderating off later.

  1. I’m just trying out a different approach. I just renamed my wp-comment-post.php to something else. Maybe that’s too simple though. Like me really šŸ™‚

  2. This approach has caught every spam of this sort over the last few days so I’m gonna start relying on it and turn moderating off.
