    I am getting these weird comments on my posts and pages and I don't know what they are or how to stop them. Underneath is a couple of examples of where these comments can be found.

    Could you please tell me how to prevent them?
    Thanks
    James

    James are you using any Anti-spam plugin...??
    You should try Akismet and conditional captcha.

    Thanks, I'll look into it and I have just installed a captcha.

  4. I would not recommend captcha, as they are not accessible to people with limited vision.

    Akismet, Cookies for Comments, and Bad Behavior are all plugins that, SANS captcha, keep spammers out.
