    Being a Movable Type user in the last six years, I can say that this is a neverending battle. Ultimately we’re able to stop 99% of spam using TypePad AntiSpam, MT AutoBan, MT Moderate, MT Approval and Spam Firewall. And, unfortunately, darned captcha. Yes, it’s a lot of things. And in the last months we’ve been coping with overloads in the .cgi comment script (which we’ve successfully rounded by fine tuning robots.txt, it seems). This last tip came, btw, from a great resource site that I reccomend to all MT users — Maarten Schenk’s

    Thanks for the advice, i hate spammers, luckily most of my spam is stopped in its tracks by wp-spam free but you do have to be careful how you set it up, you may well stop genuine commenter’s if not done properly. I get a lot of comment spam from bots scripts that sell all over the web, but these are easy to spot as they are too generalised and never on the subject of the post, you know the ones “great blog have bookmarked your site” ect ect ect. What makes me mad is the crappy or spammy sites linking up to my blog, not much you can do here except ask them to unlink which they don’t do anyway.

    My solution: Antispam Bee for WordPress – the plugin was developed by me and is very very effective.

    I’m using WordPress and my blog receive thousands of spam comments per day. My solution is blocking wordpress by using the comment moderation section. Successful rate: 90%

    Excellent post, I was being hit with the bogus posts daily. I was blocking email address’s and sites but as you know they just make new ones and continue. I just installed spam-free sounds like this is the way to go. I may use Diquis in the future if it continues. Very helpful post thanks for posting it.

    A think :
    If you ever come across something we host that’s spam just drop the link there and someone will look at it within an hour or so.
    Akismet and a few other internal tools help, but I think it’s mostly that we take splogs pretty seriously and respond accordingly.

    I didn’t discover anything about it precise within the past.

    I commented for years on Newsbusters and later on at Breibart. I rather know that people are being targetted, s.w.a.t.t.i.n.g, and for the leftist crime of being a conservative. Why should anyone risk having to register their names given the ongoing threat of systems being compromised? Why ought anybody give a phone number, for example, in order to post anything political? After Newsbusters adopted diquis, I stopped contributing, and the same went for Breibart. It does not seem that they’ve really gained much in return. I’d mostly read, to be honest, but always skipped ahead to see whether the feathers were flying. If so, I’d read the article. Just a rule of thumb for me, since I read hundreds of blogs each day besides the new media. Well, good luck all.

    Buy Rolex watches at the best prices here….. LOL, just kidding, thanks for your post, is amazing, I can´t find my website trough ANY search engine, I receive NO traffic at all, and I get EACH day about 10-12 spam comments EACH DAY, how is this possible, I have a site whit Joomla and Kunena forum, and Kunena has GREAT options against spammers, I can´t believe nobody has created a WordPress plugin with Kunena options, they are something like for example:
    -Flood protection, I set it to 2 mins
    -captcha on register
    -Moderate new user registration
    -Flood protection +
    -captcha +
    -Moderate new comments
    = No more spammers
    Before I set this options I was getting about 50 spammy comments a day, after that 0 ZERO, NADA, NOTHING, is really good
    Thanks for the info I´ll share it and try the WordPress plugin
