Spammers Need Not Apply
I’ve been inundated lately with spammers hitting my comments section (especially on a select few posts) and trying to register as users.
One trick I’ve applied now to cut that out is making registration no longer automatic AND requiring registration for someone to make comments.
I hate to do this, as I’ve had a lot of good traffic when SG commentary drew attention of local UF folks. But it’s the best trick I know within WordPress to block most of the spammers. We’ll see if this works.
