SPAM picture by stgermhWell, my blog seems to be picking up on popularity… with spam bots.
Today I got hit a number of times with comment spam for drug prescriptions dammit, and due to invalid email addresses I got accidental warnings in my email, so I noticed them right away.

Time to check in on the spam protection of WordPress I guess. I remember my Blogger account used a CAPTCHA form to make sure humans are entering the actual data and I never did get any spam there, so that might be a good option here as well.

For now I’ve added that specific URL I keep getting spammed with today to the spam word list in the options et voila! Since then all comments of that evil spambot is marked for moderation and doesn’t appear anymore.

It feels good to hit the delete button on those mofo’s really, whoehahaha!
