Sinister Soups Serving Musings On Game Development and Play


Spam In My Soups

It's depressing how efficient spambots are. Even though this blog is nowhere near popular, they are exceptionally good at clogging the tubes with literally dozens of garbage comments a day, especially on the posts that show up fairly high under specific Google searches.

I wonder if anyone else here has a WordPress blog and has found good solutions for this problem? I have looked at several possible plugins, but I'm a little reticent to put one into use without knowing the pros and cons or different solutions. I suppose the simplest solution would be some sort of captcha test on comments, but I'm not crazy about adding a layer of extra work for anyone wanting to post a comment, ideally I'd like something effective but non-intrusive.

Is that a fantasy? Does anyone know a good plugin that they could recommend?
