I am so tired of getting spam comments on some of my sites. I’ve also tried many anti-spam plugins.
- Spam-Free Plugin
- Comment Math Questions
- Comment Quiz
- Comment Captcha
- Double Opt-in
- Change default comment page name from wp-comments-post.php to something else.
Guess what? None of them work so far. There are company in India hiring real people to crack the CAPTCHA code for spammers. The SPAM-Free plugin only blocks those from your blacklist or known SPAMMERS. Comment Math isn’t working when it always easy to calculate.
Most WordPress spam comments are submit from automated script running on anonymous servers with random forged IPs. So the spammer never visit your website. That really sucks out of my valuable time to fight spam and delete spam comments.
One of my site just post a new article. Within few hours, I got over 100 spam comments with ZERO visit and page view.
What can I do about it?
