Bad Behaviour

by Rob Friesel

Downloaded and installed the Bad Behaviour WordPress plug-in to combat some recent spammy comments that have been trying to sneak through. Kinda makes me wish I lived in Russia…

UPDATE: So far, no good. It’s tracking failures but I’ve still gotten close to 50 comment spam attempts already this morning… Yargh! So we’ll turn verbose logging on and see if that makes a difference…

UPDATE(2): With verbose logging turned on, it continues – – though not as heavy… Going to trawl the site a bit see if there’s any pointers that I’m maybe missing. (Still missing…)

UPDATE(3): Well 24 hours after turning on verbose logging it does appear to be working like a charm. Nothing in the past 24… Guess it just needed a couple reports to know the difference. Recommended!
