Attack of the comment spam

I have turned on comment moderation, as Media Nation was hit with comment spam overnight. Unfortunately, I’m going to be offline a good part of the day. Will try to approve comments later, as well as take down the spam.

    Spammers are like bacteria – they evolve strategies to counter your antibiotics. I’d been using a math-question captcha on my Drupal sites until the spammers somehow figured out the algorithm. Fortunately, they’ve yet to figure out the alternate captcha I’m using now.

    The CAPTCHA word verification code may not be working for the simple reason that some commercial spammers seem to have hired real flesh and blood human beings to post less than wonderful SPAM to blogs. Dan knows that I post the occasional non-commercial SPAM comment about “less than wonderful” Unitarians overnight myself. 😉
