A piece of my mind

Spam Comments

Since this blog is up, akismet already catch about 800 spam comments. For today it catches about 40 spam comments. I’m wondering how they spam a blog site? Are they using a special software or spam it manually?
I’ve tried to observe the spam. Some posts generate more spam than other posts. So I closed some posts for commenting just to see if it could block the spam that come through that post.
I read that some blogs also receive trackback spam. Actually it happened in my older blog. Luckily it doesn’t happened yet in this blog.

    Indeed, some posts generated more spams, eq. I wrote about Barney.. spam loves it. hehehe… they are writing special script to inject the comments to your web site (they’re looking for tag probably). CAPTCHA helps reducing spam….

    yup, I tried to install anti spam plugin that require visitors to input a simple math question when giving comments. It did reduce the spam, but there are still some that can get through.
    I hope the real commenters can do a simple math :D

    I think there is no risk using Akismet
