Death to Spam Bots!!!

Dude what the hell is wrong with these people? None of their posts get on my blog and most of the links they are promoting don’t even exist. Call off the bots!

How’s it going, haven’t seen you around in a while. I know what you mean man, it’s terrible. I was messing around with Spam Karma earlier today. I don’t know if I am going to install it or not on my live server, but, it seems like it could be a big step. Also, I found guy’s page for the referer spam, Caveat Lector’s.

You’ll have to upgrade to get the Spam Karma one working, to version 1.5. You should check it out though man, lots of cool new features.

Peace

No problem. Here is another one that seems to work really well, a lot easier to use than Spam Karma.

that second one sounds a lot better.. spam karma seemed like overkill to me, and i didn’t even bother to try it

Hey, sorry, I forgot to come back and let you know. It was doing that before, when I posted originally.

I upgraded to 1.5 and that plugin seems to be working… at least it’s not causing errors. We’ll see about the spam, though there’s also a blacklist in wordpress 1.5 and most of the spam I already get will be blacklisted now

hmm.. i don’t want to jinx it, but it’s been a whole day without spam.. amazing!

I know! I haven’t gotten one single bit of spam since I installed it. To be honest, I think I’ve only got a handful of it since I upgraded to 1.5. I never got the volume though that you did for some reason in the first place. I did have a real person try to post porn links though. haha!
