You know how I mentioned that I was being spammed by link-droppers on dofollow posts? Well, this was despite running Akismet. It turns out, that on top of *not* picking up the blatant link-dropping, it was falsely listing some of my long-time readers as spam! Fook knows how long that’s been going on, I never usually check my Akismet queue.
I wonder if I can convert my old score based spam prevention into a WordPress plugin. If nothing else it’ll give me a hands-on look at actually creating a proper plugin. (This is the part where you guys tell me where to start…)
I’ve disabled Akismet and I’m trying out Spam Karma 2 instead. Please let me know if you see any errors, or have any problems commenting.
