Hi everyone, I was wondering why the wordpress community has yet to develop a real answer to spam. The plugins that I see now do a slipshod job and are all partial answers that don't really provide a real solution.
They either block everything (http://blog.stevofc.com/2009/07/02/want-comments-disable-wp-spamfree/) or let in way too much real spam (just google for akismet reviews).
Maybe I'm old school but the only plugin that I found to do an amazing job was Dr. Dave's SpamKarma - which is sadly no longer in development. Although there is a Google Code repository, I don't see much happening over there but maybe I'm wrong.
In any case, I wanted to see if there is support for bringing SpamKarma up to snuff with current WP development. Without any js or cookie jibberjabber or weird invisible fields it was able to stop 100% of my spam. Does anyone else remember the glory days of spam free blogging with SK2?
What do you say?
