Last week, I was exchanging text messages with Alecks Pabico of PCIJ asking me more ways to prevent the deluge of spam on their blog. My current anti-spam tool is just Akismet and Spam Karma 2 but it seems that these two aren’t enough for other blogs like that of PCIJ.
The Online Marketing Blog has and entry on “10 Spam Stopping Techniques For Your Blog” which includes a captcha, user registration, Bad Behavior plugin and even OpenID. Now that’s an overkill of an army against anti-spam but I reckon that someday spammers will be too smart that we will all need those tools.
But what about real people doing the spamming themselves manually? Now, that’s another challenge.
