Anybody else having plenty of comment spam problems?
I've rummaged through a dozen or two WordPress plugins-- from captchas to math to drag and drop images-- and absolutely nothing seems to stop comment spammers from riddling a site with their disease.
Between the automated bots and the cheap labor manual entries, comment spam is probably hear to stay. As a last resort I installed the WordPress Akismet plugin. I was pleasantly surprised. It doesn't stop comment spam, but it does a very good job of catching comment spam and has oh so very few false positives. The new one-click button to delete spam is a nice addition, too. It's still a pain to deal with but the effort is reduced to a quick visual scan and one click to delete it all.
What are you using to combat comment spam?
