“The Hole” now has the reCAPTCHA anti-spam plugin. Automated scripts are a pain in the ass, and hopefully they can’t read. With the reCAPTCHA, humans must type in the words, not unlike purchasing Hanna Montana tickets. I still blame Comment Kahuna as it requires someone to actually look at the site. Sometimes. Up to today, we’ve been getting spam crap like
Great Job Boys 8675309af5c This is just what I was looking for. Keep it up 234ac33d I too, have issues with [insert name of post here]. This will help me back in Bangalore.
Donncha recently wrote about these spam comments and how they generate Google love without backlinks. Today, Lynette cries that her blog is drowning in spam, and there are CAPTCHA tools to use with Blogger. Hopefully, Lynette will see a decrease in her spam comments.
The question I have for these comment spammers is “Where does it work?” It’s the same question for the 858 spam emails that I have wanting me to purchase “\/i@gra.” Who is the idiot who buys this crap from people who don’t even know how to spell it? Obviously, some moron has to be buying from the spammers or they’d stop, wouldn’t they?
“I sent out my link to the top 10,204,285 emails and got twenty people to buy this crap. Must be a pretty good deal. I think I’ll change my web address and send it out again. Maybe I’ll get another 20 purchases.”
Anyway, I added the reCAPTCHA yesterday, and in conjunction with Akismet, I’m getting no spam comments. The next step is defeating the splogs who copy a paragraph of your post and adding it to theirs.
