Comment Spam? What’s That?
:cool: Several sites powered by WordPress have reported comment spam, too.
Well, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility with pM, depending on how you have things set up, especially if you don’t require membership. But the damage should be limited to one spam post (or a few over a longer period of time), rather than a site full.
no spam at my site either. :thumbsup:
I’m using pMachine Pro and I just started getting spammed. I then turned on the time block thing and I’m still getting spam. A friend of mine told me that one sure fire way is to require that a user type in a graphic (not scanable) text string and on the server side do a compare. If it don’t work, don’t allow it. This seems fairly sane to me, but I haven’t the slightest clue in the PM code where to begin. I can make the graphic and do the HTML, no problem, but I’d love some help on the PHP/PM side.
I just started getting content spammed yesterday, and thus far I’m up to about 50-60 spams, partially because I’m currently using the free version instead of Pro and partially because I don’t require membership. It would be nice if someone developed a pMachine blacklist that purged these comment spams automatically. I lack the time or ability to do so, unfortunately.
pmachine 2.4 is supposed to have blacklist and whitelist in it; of course it’s the last version of pmachine that will be out; I’m going to install and play with it now.
