Asking spammers to work harder

For last two months my blog is gaining popularity. I am not lying I can prove that, Spams. Everyday I get close to 10 to 20 spams. Today they crossed the limit with over 100 spams. I decided to make them work harder for every comment.

I have added two things:-

  1. My Favourite Akismet – When a new comment, trackback, or pingback comes to your blog it is submitted to the Akismet web service which runs hundreds of tests on the comment and returns a thumbs up or thumbs down. Alll you need to do is download it from http://akismet.com/download and then copy it to the plugin folder (wp-content/plugins/). Copy the folder akismet inside wp-content/plugins/, so it will look like wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php. Once this is done get registered at http://wordpress.com/signup/ and then visit http://wordpress.com/profile/ for the API key. Enter the API from your admin section and it will start working.
  2. This is one I liked from matt cutts blog, a spam controller to stop people some more spammers (the ones who are not good at maths 🙂 ). Complete details at Math spam plugin

Sorry for the inconvenience and I am sure my blog will help you recapitulate those mathematical lessons. Have fun. Do you also some spam controller for your blogs?
