Will it never end?!

with 46 comments

Ok, i spent about 10-15 minutes tonight just deleting SPAM comments. It is really becoming a problem. They are beginning to look just like my email, running the gamut from herbal remedies to purn porn. Thank goodness that they cant post pictures in the comments, or I would be in really big trouble. WHY ME! Is anyone else noticing this becoming a major problem? Any tips? I know I could block IP’s, but more than likely, these spammers are using proxies. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  1. do you think they are using the same bot ?
    couldn’t you build in a second affirmation click for posting comments ?

  2. Make this comment form in flash ;D No spammer would ever waste time figuring out variables used for sending. Or, put a verification jpg here (like hotmail) with scrambled number or smth.

  3. Oh man, this really sucks. Fortunately I haven’t been hit this hard, but who knows. It’s probably inevitable. Registration is one way to prevent it, but I’m not a fan of registration either.

  4. Well, I think we have to think wich blogs are being spammed and which system they use for the blog. Is it possible that only MovableType blogs are being spammed? In that case, I think tweaking a bit the comments template would solve the problem if they are using a bot.

    Another solution would be to moderate the comments being posted in the site.

    I have been looking for info about other blogs being spammed and seems that MovableType blogs are hit harder than other systems. I will post more info in my blog around the day.

  5. Man, that does suck. You know, perhaps you could use a real CMS (wink wink nudge nudge) where in order for people to post comments, they must create an account and login. Sitting ever so comfortably within the relatively secure seat of Postnuke really helps me overall. Now I do allow anonymous posting for now, but if they start to annoy … ding, back to non-anon world we go.

  6. I found an interesting link where they found some solutions to comments spammers for MT. Hope it helps you.

  7. I don’t know if this works in every case, but as these comment spam-bots seem to be specialized on MT-blogs it might help to rename mt-comments.cgi to somethin else like dura-comments.cgi and then exchange the action in your comment template. I don’t think the bot parses your page first.

  8. Wow, thanks for the response and the links. I went to bed last night and woke up with all of these comments….you people need to get some sleep :)

    Well, I really dont like the registration idea too much, but I think what I might do is just link my comments to the flogspot forums, and then make it so that ‘guests’ can comment. Atleast then the bots wont bother trying.

    Im also going to check out those links and see what they say.

  10. And btw, do you mind adding my blog to Flogspot? I noticed it’s not there. And how I link the comments to the forums?

  11. I sure will. I am hoping that this weekend I will have some time to make some updates to the site, and I will add them then! At the same time also, I am going to add the page that will help bloggers link to the actual page of thier comment on the system.

  14. I find it highly amusing (and ironic!) that this thread has been overtaken by comment spam.
