Lately I’ve been bombarded with comment spam (free online poker anyone?).

I have expanded the list of keywords that flag a comment as potential spam, thus requiring manual admin approval before it is posted. This is still annoying, though, as I have to disapprove the spam every time it is posted. Therefore, I have implemented a simple but hopefully effective automatic anti-comment-spam solution based on Elliott Back’s Spam Stopgap Extreme. The only downside is that it requires Javascript to be enabled in order to post comments. If for some reason you are unable to post a comment, please email me at digitalhobbit AT digitalhobbit DOT com.
