Spam blog comments

Posted in general by sausheong on July 21, 2006

I’ve been hit very badly by spam blog comments recently that I’ve closed off many of my blog entries from comments. Unfortunately there’s no mass turning off of blog comments in WordPress (or at least I don’t know how to) so I’m still getting huge amounts of mails asking me to approve blog comments. However that’s not really what I want either — I just want to automatically bump off such spam blog comments.
Anyone with any good proven ideas on how to counter this?

    was just looking for something last night. http://akismet.com/ looks promising. but i haven’t got time to do anything for myself.

    my current antispam? iptables -A INPUT -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -j DROP

    but that’s a really really lousy interim
