I get loads of ideas for various things by reading other people’s blogs. Mostly kit I have to admit, but more recently I’ve been interested in spam filters.
Over at BG, Bearded Git has been trialling a WordPress plug-in that is supposed to completely remove all spam entries from the blog comments submissions. “Sounds too good to be true” I thought, but it seems that it does actually work.
To give it a thorough test, I’ve turned off comment moderation; so if anything nasty creeps through I do apologise and I will switch it back on.
