Spams are annoying. Eversince this blog is indexed by Google, spammers indexed it too! And I’ve been receiving at least 20 spam comments everyday. Thank God, Akismet is there, but still, it wasn’t enough. I don’t even want to see them on my Akismet logs. I don’t want them to be able to post the comment in the first place before Akismet found them and put them on the spam list. I want them to vanish, as if a typhoon wiped them out. So, I decided to search for a captcha plugin.
There are many captcha plugin available on the web. And I like Peter’s Custom Anti Spam the most and installed it on this blog. What I like on it is that you can create your own list of captcha keywords, and it will generate the necessary jpg file for you. For this blog, I used the official Philippine typhoon names. If the spam bots can’t identify the typhoon name, then they will not be able to post the comment. See, typhoons can be useful sometimes. LOL!
