New Plugin: Non-Numeric-Names (2 posts)

    I use Bad Behavior as my only anti-spam solution. For my own reasons, I don't feel completely comfortable with Akismet or Spam Karma 2.

    I've been receiving a ton of manual spam comments since upgrading to WordPress 2.0 (confirmed as manually submitted by ioerror, author of Bad Behavior), all of which are slipping past Bad Behavior.

    I noticed that almost all of these spam comments have an all-numeric user name. So I cooked up non-numeric-names, which simply marks as spam any comment with an all numeric name.

    It's not a fool proof anti-spam solution, but for those of you (like me) with qualms about some of the other tools, this might help minimize the amount of moderation you perform on a daily basis.

    Be sure to use Spam Nuker to delete spam, or to retrieve legitimate comments incorrectly flagged as spam.
