Scott helps us fight back against the comment spammers…


I really hate comment spammers, they really ruin a great forum for the rest of us.  I am glad to see that Scott has just armed us with some new weapons to help out.  I turned on the comment moderation to test it out and see how it goes.  I admit it is a bit of a speedbump for most of you folks, but I hope it will not slow down the conversation too much… at least now you’ll know I “sorta” read each post 😉 

 

Ahh, I also notice a nicer editing experince… thanks Scott! 

 

What do you think?  Will this be enough?

    I use typepad and it has the ability to block IP addresses. Does .TEXT have a similar mechanism?

    Actually 2 points i think you are missing.

    1. What will you do when you have to delete hundreds of SPAM?

    The spamers have automatic tools that post comments. You can not fight with robots. The character recognitions will keep spamers away.

    2. Blocking IP addresses would not help since spamers using anonymous proxy servers
