Sp*m Bots

I quite simply can’t say the word. They infuriate me so much. Over the page week I have had 2 of them post on here, my blog.

I have added them to the spam list in hope of not future reoccurrence although now I have the image verification ‘Captcha’ image on the comments form I should hopefully be immune to those pesky bots.

I actually have been searching for a “Captcha” style image verification to keep the bots out. I found a few but I had a fair few problems with them therefore I gave up although I stumbled across generated one from ProtectWebForm.com So far, touch wood, it has worked a treat and in my opinion nice and simple for the user to use!

A bit of a small entry today however I needed a rant 🙂

    Hey, try akismet I use it on wordpress and it has not let any spam through, it’s caught about 76 comments so far.

    Yes, I had wondered about that although I think at the moment my verification image is doing the trick for guests. I need to look into “akismet” a bit more as I admittedly didn’t give it much time before…
