Stopping Comment Spam

While this will not be of the greatest of use to a large slice of Thanet's bloggers it should be of use to those of us that have progressed beyond blogger in our needs and requirements. Having now stabilised the server against a massive denial of service attack of spam comments I have gathered enough notes to write quite an in depth post on the subject.

Rather than bother the bulk of Thanet's bloggers for whom the article will possibly be a little too technical I will post a link to it on a blog I maintain exactly for all that technical stuff: How to beat blog spammers and their spam - a guide is the article (it came to six pages in my word processor while I was spell checking it) and it covers the story of what I have done and an in depth listing of things you can do too to stop spam hitting your comments.

For those on fully hosted solutions (blogger) you will have to hope that your hosts have some answers.
