I've been hit with a lot of spam on my blog recently (about 3/hour).
I tried a few things, like changing the name of the script that posts comments, but it only worked for a few hours.
I read this article in search of a better solution.
In searching through the list of plug-ins, I found Comment Challenge. I decided to give it a try. It was easy to setup and it looks like it will do what I need. Now when you post a comment, the comment won't go anywhere until you type in a phrase at the bottom.
I'm curious if this works for everybody. I haven't gotten any spam in the last hour, so it seems to be working. I also haven't gotten any real comments, so it might be a bit overzealous.
I want to know if it stops real people from posting. So give it a shot! Post a comment!
