Blog Spam

December 29th, 2004 Leave a comment Go to comments

Fortunately, as yet, I’m yet to succumb to Blog Spam – where spammers use your blog to get their message across

Because I have developed my own blog, I’ve left room for some Spam filtering options when posting comments or trackbacks. As yet I have yet to implement these features.

Fortunately, I stumbled across this page which gives Moveable Type users information on how to avoid spam, and also links to this page which lists a load of black listed URLs. I can now start to implement a bit of a Bayesian filter for sorting out spam.

Excellent!

This page lists some other things that I could do – e.g. blocking spammers using a .htaccess file
