Support » Plugin: Spam protection, AntiSpam, FireWall by CleanTalk » I have never seen so much spam!

  • I installed this on one of my clients websites and I have never seen so many spam messages coming through. It was like it was welcoming spam. The site would only get 34 visitors but somehow it would get hundreds of spam comments in a day. In order to get rid of the spam comments, I had to manually go in and ask it to search for the spam and then manually tell it to delete the spam. If I didn’t check it often, the spam comments would be in the thousands of thousands when I would go to clean them out. I am sticking to an automated spam filter from now on.

    Hello rinsestudios,

    Thank you a lot for feedback.

    Cleantalk shows you every attempt to post a spam on your website. Most of anti-spam tools don’t provide such logs that’s why you can be surprised after setuping Cleantalk.

    Did you use any anti-spam tools with logs before Cleantalk? How many spam did you see there?

    To scan for spam among pending or approved comments please go here,

    WordPress console -> Comments -> Check for spam.

    Cleantalk will scan all comments and provide a list of spam comments. Then you can delete these comments by one click.

    Does it help?

    Hi Denis,

    I was having 1500 plus spam comments every time I logged in which was once every couple of days. I needed a plugin that checked spam and moved it to the spam folder for me automatically. It was taking up too much time to check the spam each time I logged in because there was simple too much of it. I was spending 15 minutes each time just cleaning up the spam. I switched to a plugin that cleans up the spam for me automatically without me having to click check for spam.

    Thanks

    Grace
