Trackback Spam

Filed under: blog — Dave Rathbun @ 12:03 pm CommentsComments (4) 

I have documented fairly well the code changes and other methods that were added to this blog to deter and even eliminate comment spam. I also posted a bit ago that I was going to be less active here just because of other demands on my time, at least for a month or so. Imagine my surprise when I logged in to my blog admin panel this morning and there were 125 spam comments caught by Akismet.

And none of them showed up in the comment log that is a part of my custom system. :shock: What was going on? And more importantly, if there was a hole in my code, would it impact the Checkbox Challenge MOD that I am using to deter spam registrations on my phpBB boards?

Taking a short break…

I won’t be blogging as much over the next few weeks. I have a few posts already written and scheduled to come out, but won’t have time to do anything new for a while. Too much work. :shock:
