    Google has implemented another mechinism to help stop spammers sabotaging PageRank etc...

    http://www.google.com/googleblog/2005/01/preventing-comment-spam.html

    "From now on, when Google sees the attribute (rel="nofollow") on hyperlinks, those links won't get any credit when we rank websites in our search results."

    Could we implement this into the link code for autolinks and what not, in comments

    ie,

    Visit my <a href="http://www.example.com/">discount pharmaceuticals</a> site.

    That comment would be transformed to

    Visit my <a href="http://www.example.com/" rel="nofollow">discount pharmaceuticals</a> site.

  6. Milpoer, there is an anti-spam function in WordPress. Look in Options/Discussions. It's basic, but gets the job done. Also, there are HUNDREDS of WordPress anti-spam solutions at this link:

    With respect, you asked for "I would therefor like spam-control possibility in the administration module." and yet you are using obsolete software.

    .72 is not supported.

    Having a go at WP for your decision to not upgrade is not fair.

    It was not meant to be an attack? I was just not aware of the updates. It is 100% my fault that I have not researched the topic enough before I "spammed" you.

    Sorry.. But a part of my philosophy is:

    Never touch a running system.

    That is a fine philosphy :)

    But upgrading could be good too !

    Yes.. :) Sorry that I "spammed" you in here.

    Have a nice weekend.

  12. Your version (v0.72) is FULL OF KNOWN SECURITY HOLES. If you won't touch your running system, I guarantee that someone will for you.
