Need spam relief: Visual confirmation of comments?

  • Hello,
    we are getting a lot of spam comments on our podcast site.

    Is there a visual confirmation plugin available for wordpress, the kind where the poster needs to confirm a string embedded in a generated image? Or other good solutions?

    Thanks and cheers;

    captchas are getting bad press lately for their ineffectiveness. ( captcha is the generic name for what you describe, by the way, so you may be able to search for a plugin..)

    Otherwise try akismet or bad behaviour. One spam got through to me today but, to be fair, it was crafted like a “real” comment and I had to manually check the linked site to make sure myself.

    Akismet has worked pretty well for myself and others

    Hepp,
    Akismet installed and activated – let’s see how things change now.

    Thanks guys!
