Comment Spam

Well, I’ve caved and have to turn off comments for a bit. For the last month or so, I’ve been getting slammed with comment and trackback spam – so much so that it takes me about an hour each day to stay on top of it.

I will turn comments on once I find time to upgrade WordPress, using their Akismet spam plugin.


I’ve upgraded WordPress and have activated the spam plugin. I’d also like to incorporate a “captcha”-style comment (spam deterrent) option as well. Any recommendations?
