Fight comment spam

I hate spam, you hate spam, comment spam on self-hosted wordpress is still very real, and will grow exponentially as your blog popularity does. Akismet and Re-Captcha might be the biggest spam fighters out there, but let’s face it they’re far from the best, and I personally hate captchas with a passion. There’s nothing like a blurry captcha to make me lose all interest in leaving a comment. Right now the plugin I’m using is ‘antispam bee‘ and i really can’t complain. Here’s a few other wordpress plugins with interesting approaches to help you fight spam:

antispam-bee

yawasp

wp-spamfree

(Not a wp plugin but very interesting concept)
ajax-fancy-captcha-jquery-plugin
