Adblock Plus and (a little) more

Anti-spam protection in the comments · 2007-02-05 12:22 by Wladimir Palant

A few days ago this blog was hit by the first automated comment spam attack since I installed it. I stopped the immediate attack by banning the spammer’s email address, but now I added proper anti-spam protection similar to what is used in the forum to prevent the same thing from happening again. If you notice any issues adding comments please send me a mail.

    As this site is obviously running my pet CMS Textpattern, would you mind sharing how you accomplished spam filtering? Are you runnning a spam evaluator plugin (a rare animal, I am only aware of Sencer’s asy_captcha), or do you apply other counter measures?

    I’m not into tricking you to uncover your trade secrets, just a little nosing around.

    Reply from Wladimir Palant:

    No, I am only making it hard to submit automated messages. If you view source you will surely find out how I do it. It won’t help against somebody who is determined to spam this particular site – but I don’t think anybody will bother writing custom spamming procedures only to send some spam messages that won’t survive a few hours.

    What’s up with all you google groupies, like the OP? why won’t you just fuck off, google sucks. Google cares about itself and not about its users. Google cares about covering as much ground as possible with bad coding and bad techiques. Google wants you to think using your brain even a bit is “effort” and therefore should be avoided.
