First Comment Spam on WP

I got my first comment spam on the new and inproved WordPress version of Keks today… some gambling crap I believe… didn’t follow the link, just deleted it along with a comment in relation to it, and added the related IP to the spam list… but I can’t go on doing that forever, otherwise I’ll end up with another pain-in-the-arse like the MT site which preceded this one.

It appears that there is a solution… WP Hashcash.


  1. Theres a great spam plug-in for wp called Kitten Spam Words. After a few attempts it takes the spammer to your pay pal page and tells them that if they want to advertise on your site they will have to pay. An added bonus is that it drives spammers crazy!
