Is it just me…

…or are the comment spams getting more and more like poetry?

“Bloating belly eructations,
should become epileptic were drawn off a cases traceable.
Proved effectual discount blue/clear phentermine,
her employment friction prescribed you afforded body rarer.
Urgently,
eyes daughter mr or i feel buy phentermine 3″

That’s beautiful man….

    Balls… how many are getting through the net? Are you having to delete them by hand?

    I just did a batch of 3 today, 1 via moderation, and 2 which I deleted through ‘edit’ since they were already shown. The spammers have stopped including URLs, which helps them slip through. Is it possible to flag certain words as requiring moderation? Alladin(+integer) seems to have got through about 4 times and needed manual deletion.

    Generally I get maybe 3 a week to manually delete. Akismet nails between 4 and 7 a day, so it’s doing most of the work. Besides, without spam I’d feel much less loved - who can harbour ill feeling for somebody who tells you:

    “Your site is very cognitive. I think you will have good future.:)”

    I like the idea of better living through cognisance.

    Yeah. There is a moderation keyword list in the wordpress options. If you spot a stupid word that keeps coming up, add it there and anything containing it goes straight in the queue.

    There’s also a blacklist that automatically deletes comments matching some words, but be careful what you add to that.

    P.S. The Akismet spam catcher is set up for you and does seem to be catching most spams before they get as far as moderation.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading extremely
    slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a
    issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem
    still exists.
