Best solution regarding spam, in my experience, is www.akismet.com. This was originally meant for wordpress, but has been used in pixelpost. I think there’s an add-on of some sort unless the feature is built right into pixelpost.
Julien : Hum, Askimet wasn’t the best solution for me, some of the spams were stopped but not 100%, but I admit my solution has a drawback : you must imperatively click on the “submit comment button” but this is not really a problem with pixelpost. For those who are interested in the Askimet solution, read this]]>
Not necessarly but first solution in my mind is quite awfull :
we’ll need a per IP/country automatic moderation :/
For example a comment from UK could be considered as ok, one from Angola submitted to moderation with an option to bann a country. yep that’s not ideal but …
Another method could be to check how much comment from a ‘poor’ country, if it occur from a real ‘usefull’ user it’s probably not twice a day ? It could be combined with IP range ban, … endless battle isn’t it
If a country doesn’t have nor respect legislation to punish spammers what other choice ?
Oh! still the content check, spamming without adress nor brand is quite useless (but that’s a definition for spam anyway, useless and dumb).
Et moi qui cherchait la solution si loin, sur le net, alors qu’elle etait si “proche”!
Un gros merci! Tu viens de me sauver un 15 minutes de SPAM par jour!
Merci Julien! J’t'en dois une!
p.s. Instructions d’installation pas valides pour pixelpost 1.7.
Julien : Exact pour la V1.7 de pixelpost, mais je vais attendre la release finale avant celà. Il est d’ailleurs même probable qu’il ne soit plus nécessaire de hacker pixelpost vu le nouveau système de plugin … à étudier.]]>
About the “manual spam” I read once that it might soon become cost-effective for the spammers to hire people of poor countries in order to bypass protections against spambots such as captcha… or yours. If it turns true, we bloggers we’ll be in deep trouble
Julien : Ouch yes you are right, if spammers become humans we would need moderation everywhere.]]>
This is a great patch, thanks. I’m using it for two days now and no more spam! To make it XHTML compliant I had to modify the “onClick” attribute in “onclick”.
Julien : Thanks for your observation Piet, I corrected the code.]]>
