I’ve added the plugin Bad Behavior to this blog. I’ve seen a large up tic in spam. Not much makes it through to the comments list where I approve comments. But, the number flowing into the Spam List increased by a factor of about 10.
So, in an effort to keep the database a bit cleaner and faster, I added Bad Behavior. I’ll be watching it over the next few days to see how it works.
Let me know if it creates a problem for you when you attempt to post a comment.
Update: Apparently ‘Bad Behavior’ blocks OpenID. That should not block your comments on this site.
