More spam after 2.6 upgrade (6 posts)

    Hey people.

    I've been getting a lot more spam since I upgraded to 2.6. Before I hardly had to mark comments as spam because Aksimet caught almost everything. Now, I have up to 10 spam comments waiting to be marked. What's the deal?

    Hope I'm not the only one experiencing this...

    You are not. And it seems that somehow some of the spam is making it in "approved" even though it triggered the spam/moderation filtering I have set up (anything with a link, etc.)

    Someone has figured out a hack. Is there anyone working on this?

    Actually, it is happening on my 2.5.1 installs as well, and I just noticed that, on these, there is no longer the update alert for 2.6 on the dashboard that was there just days ago... Any news on this?

    Akismet + WP-SpamFree ( http://www.hybrid6.com/webgeek/plugins/wp-spamfree ) might help

    WP-SpamFree did the trick. Thanks a lot :)
