If you manage a WordPress blog with comments enabled, you already know… the spammers – ugh! What the heck?
Free Texas Holdem Says:
“I am much pleasing to be reading your excellent blog. I will visit repeatedly again you mighty site in the future.”
Nobody wants the Texas Holdem Guy to be dropping comments on their site.
WordPress has been pushing the Akismet plugin forever. Akismet has the following amazing features:
- Dumps lots of legitimate comments into the Spam bucket
- Lets lots of complete spam right through
- Requires you to use a special magic key on every site
Great, eh? No, not so much.
If you’d like to simply have less spam to deal with, without losing real comments, then don’t use Akismet. Use Anti-Captcha instead.
You will still have some comment spam to moderate, but it will be a trickle, and you won’t ever have to go into the spam folder to look for real comments any more.
Everybody wins, except the Texas Holdem guy, of course.
