Spam Comments...How can I stop them? (4 posts)

    I get about 30 emails a day sometimes more of spam comments, my wordpress admin site have over 1000 spam comments that I'm yet to find the time to delete them. How can I stop this? It's really annoying to get all those emails saying I have a comment and when I read it, it's a spam!
    Thanks.

    Automattic would recommend their Akismet solution

    Akismet should weed out an overwhelming majority of your spam.

    IMO, CAPTCHA is fine for registering but if you use it for commenting, you'll lose many people.
