I Hate Spam

I’ve given up on cleaning spam comments and spam registrations on my site. If anyone has good advice then I’d be more than happy to hear what you have to say.

Lately, spam has been reaching ~400-500 comments and ~40-80 registrations per day. Managing a blog is starting to become a job. I blame WordPress for not implementing a decent registration blocker and a better spam net to catch this waste of my time. The plugins I’ve tried do nothing for registration spam.

I’d love to hear from you all about what works and what doesn’t! It’s a shame that people stoop low enough to spam blogs hundrends of times per night just to make a buck. When can we all live in peace and say what we want without people trying to trump us?

      I actually have this enabled and it catches comment spam very well, but I’m still unable to catch registration spam which leads to more comment spam. I have new registrations disabled, yet every day I get 50-60 new registrations. That is the frustrating part..
