    Hey,

    Can anyone link me to the wordpress comment validator that uses a randomlly generated set of numbers in order to verify a user's post? As of now I'm using an email validator, but I noticed on this site:

    A much better way!

    Thanks in advance, I love you all dearly.

    Yes.. I have tried all of them. I'm just specifically looking for one like whats featured on that site I linked.

    IMO, having to clean out logs of all the spam it catches is annoying. I'd rather have them need to input random text in order to verify its a human.

    bozer - go to the link. there's a huge list of options for you to choose from, including ones that do what you see on that other site.

    it just happens that a lot of people don't like those because of accessibility issues and having to have different things installed on the system just to generate a little image, when spam blocking plugins can do it for you.

    you can set the logs in some of them to delete on their own...
