A (temporary) victory over spam

Created Thu 3 Aug 06 - 4:18 by Mithandir in category Chasing the Sunset

Last weekend I upgraded the anti-spam measures in WillowCMS, the system that I wrote which powers this blog, as well as my pictures gallery and Reinder's Rogues of clwyd-rhan site. The upgrade has been very effective and not a single spam has gotten through yet since.

Today I've moved the commenting system on the rest of the site to use WillowCMS as well, so I now have the same protection there and no longer have to delete 20-80 spam messages each day.

of course this is only a temporary solution. Eventually scripts will come that bypass the new defenses. But for now ... no spam.
