Anti-Spam Techniques

This post is in the way of an apology to anyone who may have a problem posting a comment on this site form now on.

Over the past few months I’ve been absolutely bombarded by spam comments to this blog – literally several hundred a day – far too many to check properly for the legitimate comments, so I have probably deleted several valid comments as I’ve been mass deleting spam.

I’ve now introduced two new measures to combat this – the WP SPam Free plugin I’ve been using, which was great to start with is now ineffective, so I’ve added Akismet and a Capcha type plug in to reinforce it. If you find posting comments from now on is too arduous then please let me know and I’ll try and tune the strength of the filtering. The last thing I want is to alienate people posting legitimate comments.
