How to stop all the spam comments? (2 posts)

    I do have it go through a filter, so it doesn't appear on my blog, but every couple days I have to delete (mark as spam) a few hundred spam posts. Is there a way to make it so I get less? Or is this normal?

    Mostly normal but plugins can help select the real spam from the not-spam. I find that installing Akismet and Cookies for Comments is a good combination.

    This one works well too.
