Spam Karma

Posted by Mark

The past week I have been having serious issues with Spam on this blog. For some reason my previous spam checker Hashcash was letting some spam through and I was getting at least 30 comments a day via email awaiting my approval that were all spam. So I decided to try a different Spam plugin called Spam Karma. Right away it detected the recent spams and adds them to the blacklist. So far I haven’t received any new Spams but the day is still young. Hopefully though I won’t be having any more spam issues.

According to the early beta users Its supposed to be incredibly accurate capturing spam with no false positives. I don’t think I will be installing it anytime soon since I am using Spam Karma and it has been doing an incredible job catching in total over 10,000 spam comments since I installed it late September. Plus Spam Karma is free. [Link] […]
