Lately the scum-of-the-earth spammers have been attempting to attach bogus (spam) comments to my weblog entries. WordPress has options for requiring comment moderation sufficient to keep the comments from appearing in public, but chew up my time zapping the bogus entries.
Since the spammers use web robots, this became bothersome.
Another WordPress user (and contributor) was sufficiently bothered to come up with a plugin to zap just this particular sort of comment spam. After adding the Kitten’s Spaminator plugin to my installation, I have found it indeed works quite well.
Good stuff :)
