Searching for the ultimate anti-spam plugin (3 posts)

    I'm getting a lot of spam comments on my blog and none of the solutions I've tried so far have worked.

    The thing that all spam comments have in common is that they include backlinks to another site. So I'm searching for a plugin that simply treats all comments containing links as spam.

    I'd also like the Website field disabled and to treat all automated comments that set it as spam.

    Anyone know of a plugin that does this?

    Not all comments with links are spam. Sometime real comments contain links.

    You may try anti-spam plugin.
    It blocks spam in comments without captcha and without moderation queues.
    It is very easy to use: just install and it just works.

    P.S. I created this plugin and it rejects spam pretty good.

    thanks for your reply.

    Perhaps to you they're not spam, but they are to me. Ideally the plugin should show a message warning the user that any link will cause the comment to be treated as spam. If people want to leave links, my blog isn't for them.

    I'll have a look at your plugin, but it doesn't sound like what I'm after.
