    Might I emphasize the last point of blocking out IP's from commenting? I was just hit with a spam comment. If anyone else is hit, speak up so we can find out if this is a bot or a human.

    What to do?

    How about a simple blog description popup page? Not hard to create on my own really, but might be nice to include in the package.

    I mentioned elsewhere that I got hit by a blog comment spammer which I spotted today (September 3). Stupidly, I forgot to note any details, like an IP address. The post was one dated August 30, 2003. It would be useful to be able to filter/view/sort comments within the administration interface rather than having to go to phpMyAdmin.

    I think the most elegant solution, in addition to the IP tracking/banning, to the comment-spam issue would be to introduce some further comments system options, besides just comments on/off: (a) comments restricted to registered users, (b) comments to be approved by admin or blog owner(s), and the ability to set a permanent link to an external commenting hosting/forum service.

    New features:
    - The ability to set something after post_blog_title (and similar) so that I can have my blogtitle after that info.

    Most wanted feature EVER!:
    - Last Comments: Which shows X last comments on the site.
    I have a hack at the moment, but it's slooooooow! And this is by far the most used secondary feature on my site.

    Would like to see a blog community capability as with b2++ by donncha :)
    Donncha did nice work starting with b2 as foundation. We got 150 + blogs up and running in short order!
    Adding to those ideas, community owners need a user admin panel to disable accounts, remove aborted or abandoned accounts, segregate active accounts from inactive accounts in blog lists, group email to all blog owners...
    Hey... anybody have a use for a domain like blogword.com ?

    Donncha is a contibuting developer on WordPress. I believe the b2++ features will be coming to WP when he has time.
    I agree that having a view of comments like the view of posts would be really nice in the admin interface - it is on my to-do list.

    Hi Gamerz,
    yes it was porn spam.
    By the way, my IP is still banned from your site as it has been for the last 12 months!

    I'd like to emphasize:
    - For wordpress.org to have an icon so I can find it in all my tabs ;)
    This is a simple thing to do as I understand it. Don't you just stick the right icon into the root of apache with the right name or something? Fortunately, most other sites I visit do this so it isn't a big thing, but it's a nice pro touch. :-)
    Oh yeah, and cutting comment spam would be nice, but not at the sacrifice of cutting real users. IPs change for dial-up all the time and even for broadband. I don't want to inadvertently cut out a real user.

    The inclusion of a default favicon wouldn't be a good idea, too big a chance for people like me who're bound to overwrite their own.

    I think a better solution to the spam problen would be to create a feature that would require human to input a querystring that was based on an image, that a robot could not read.

    Oh, yes, captcha's ... goody, why don't we just put a permanent ban on handicapped people accessing the web. >:-(

    As already stated in another of my postings in this forum: in my eyes the only method that will work is URL blacklisting, possibly in combination with Comment Moderation. Every other method has drawbacks that either rise the bar for "real users" or can be circumvented by spammers more or less easily.

    Ooh, preview improvements would be great! b2 did a bad job of it. I'm really looking forward to what WP is doing with that. :-)

    I really hope that Unicode becomes the default encoding or at the very least is fully supported. This will allow those of us who want to post in multiple languages to do so and doesn't affect others. After changing the many encodings sprinkled throughout the code in the 1.0 release, I still found that Japanese postings in the comments are missing characters in random places (which reappear when you edit the comments in admin mode).

    I agree with the previous posting by kmlawson. I would like to switch languages (English, Japanese and Chinese) in one posting, so I really hope that Unicode will be the standard encoding in your system. I also found some Asian characters do not appear in a right way. Please support Unicode!!!

    yes I'd like captchas, (word|ip) blacklists, and bayesian too.
    @ poster [Posted: Nov 1, 2003 14:12:21]
    But blacklists might discriminate against the etiquette challenged! :P

    August 14, 2004: I'm getting hit by a comment spammer who uses the drug name "tramadol" and comes from the IP addresses 61.30.47.21 and 61.30.47.22, which resolve to http://relievepain.org/ I had 20 spams yesterday and 34 overnight/this morning. All the e-mail addresses are different, however, so it's obviously some kind of spambot that's integrated with a mass mailing list. Sometimes "tramadol" is hyperlinked to the domain name and sometimes it isn't.
    I am wondering whether IP banning within the administration interface will be part of the "better spam control" promised for version 1.3. Because I'm on a shared hosting service, use of the .htaccess or modification of my server configuration file is inefficient and bothersome because I have to contact the ISP to restart the server any time such changes are made. Looking forward to version 1.3 anyways!

    You might want to head over to matt's blog - the Tramadol thing seems to have hit a few of us.
    If you install Kittens Spam-Comments plugin, that will mass delete spams and also block the IP's
