No spams on Blogs
One of the most dreaded threats that any blogger faces comes in the form of comment spamming. A lot of people would have confronted with spurious comments posted by automatic bots on pills etc and also from persons sans ethics using others blogs to solicit visits to thier websites.
There have been a diversifed ways of combating this. Till now, the following have been used popularly.
- Comment Moderation
Comment moderation enqueues all the comment till the blog owner/administration peruses through the comments that are pending approval and gives a nod. CAPTCHA filters all the comments that are posted by spam robots since it generates a dynamic image which is readable only by human eye and not by spam robots.
I came across this website similar to Email Relay Blacklist services which offers spam blacklisting webservice for blogosphere also. Check it out at Akismet. It is free for personal use too. So, I think, you can start using it as a valuable tool to combat spam and keep your weblogs healthy.
