    Hi,
    On my blog <A HREF="http://www.meteorologistlife.com">Meteorologist Life</A>, I am getting swamped with poker bots, and I am getting around 3,000 a day but I do not want to moderate my comments because I can't tell which is which anymore.
    I want a script that, shows an image that has a random code like "Az5N9jh" and if they get it right, it will publish the comment, otherwise it won't.
    --Steven

    Great. I've just screwed up my WordPress. Most of those hacks are for 1.2.1...

    I installed it using Fantastico (cPanel) and it said WordPress 1.3

    Kitten's Work (Spaminator and Spam Words) work effectively with 1.3
    I just checked the source of your page
    <meta name="generator" content="WordPress 1.2" />
    All the plugins will work there.

    Btw, 1.3 is still in alpha - no automated script should be offering it for installation.

    Still, it would be a good idea to add a comment activation code to the next version you make to stop spam. I think I saw phpnuke once had that.
