I would get lots of spam comments. Akismet plugin is catching nearly all of them (just 2 out of currently 814 spam comments got through to the moderation queue) and I had set up all comments to go to moderation before they got posted.
I think it’s quite annoying for people who want to leave a comment to have their post go to moderation, but I highly dislike seeing spam on other blog’s comments when I’m subscribed to them. Not to talk about my blog.
In addition, I had not allowed Pings and Trackbacks, because lot of spam can come this way.
- Math Comment Spam Protection Plugin, a very simple captcha
- Simple Trackback Validation Plugin checking if trackbacks actually link to your blog (most spammers do not set up a dedicated web page to actually link back to the blog)
I will see how it goes, but this weekend, after setting up the captcha, not a single spam!
