The Webden on WordPress

Spamalot

I don’t appear to get much spam on my own WordPress site, probably an indication of the kind of backwater it is, but the site I maintain for St Clement’s church has been getting quite a deluge recently. Certain pages seem to have made somebody’s nefarious list and so I get a handful of notifications each day that comments need moderating.

It doesn’t take long and, once in while, something comes up that isn’t spam but the ratio does feel like 99:1. I’m currently reading Rule 34 by Charles Stross where it looks like an anti-spam tool has developed to the point where it decides to take, erm, a more proactive approach to stopping spammers and part of me is seeing the attraction of the idea!
