Well does anyone else get 2 or 3 spam comments a day then? Their all from email addresses I don't recognise and I've not been dumb enough to click on any of the strange urls on them. Just wondering is all.

FUNNY YOU SHOULD MENTION IT: I had gotten in the habit of visiting the site mainly when I got an approval/disapproval messages. Then one day I got the call & when I checked I had 152 messages in spam & a few in trash. Yesterday I checked & found 16 of the buggers waiting to be deep sixed. This morning there were 6 &, when I saw your thread, I double check to find 3 more.
Well, at least it's catching them, which is something...I suppose. Suspect

Yeah, unfortunately there's no way to really stop the bots from trying... but I've got 2 spam filters that should be catching them. You can freely just clear out the spam stuff. If I can find a better way to take care of them I'll put it in place. Smile

Also, anything in the spam filter should be auto-deleted after a set period I believe, so you don't have to bother manually clearing them.

Good news!

I found a solution that might eliminate that spam. I was able to implement a simple CAPTCHA that should ONLY show up for spam bots, which should help to prevent them from ever even showing up in the spam filter. Smile Let me know how it works.

And I'm even sick! Wink

This is why I tell people to just let me know if there's anything they would like to see though. I'll get it done.

That may have been because I actually switched some stuff up this morning and disabled it for a few minutes. It's up to stay now though. Smile It's kept the main site from having any all day, and I can get up to 70 or so in a few hours!

It's been a month now... how's the spam? I'm not seeing any on the main site or my user site so I think it worked. Smile
