Spam is so annoying. It takes up so much of my time. I don’t want spammers posting here. Neither do you.

This morning I found 60 posts waiting to be moderated. I’ve have enough of this crap. I have better things to do with my time. Moderating spam is not on the short list.

Today I searched for “you must enter a code” solutions. I found Bot Check. I found a reference to it on the WordPress Spam Tools page. BotCheck is listed in the Captcha (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) section. I’m sure you are familiar with this type of test. You enter the numbers shown in an image, and the code lets you post. It’s pretty good.

Hopefully the spamming bastards will be held off a little while longer.

  1. I am pleased to report that there has not been a single instance of spam on the website since I implemented this solution.

    Of course, I realise that making the above statement is merely waving red flag and is just asking for trouble.
