Extra spam protection? (1 post)

    Hi there,

    I've noticed lately that a lot of random email addresses I don't know of have been registering themselves with my blog. I'm assuming these are spam addresses, however I didn't think anyone would be able to do that, because you need a valid email address in order to confirm...

    I also have Askimet which does a great job of capturing a ****load of spam. However - what I wondered, is if there was a way of including a "graphical validation" tool when people try and post comments, so that WordPress would handle that before the post was ever accepted?

    Thanks,

    :-Joe
