    Hi friends,

    I just wanted to share something which happened to me for the first time.

    Today, I just installed a Digg plug in on my website www.websack.net . Then, I was wandering all around my blog to enjoy my work(hehe). Then, I just got a mobile call and I was back infront of the Laptop after about 8-9 minutes and guess what???

    I had more than 45 Comments on my blog and all were spams... I got all the dirty adult links with dirty words....

    Oh! I am still shivering...

    I just activated the plug in which protects from the spam comments(askimet).

    Its alright now and it seems like even thats not working properly coz I am getting about 1 or 2 dirty comments per hour!
    Asad,

    you should not be getting those if you have askimet installed. I ALWAYS install this first and before anything else, since the auto spammers hit every board.

    good luck cleaning that up.

    You seem you have some haters :) Try to install akismet plugin to avoid spam issues.. And change the options to accept the comments before they are published

    lol just shows how many bots are active all the time, had a similar situation over at AU, ive installed this anti spam mod which gets info from the webs spam database and since then we haven't had one bit, well unless Asad has cleaned it up before i got there that is lol.

    Is there any more mods you can get for wordpress like a good image verification for Comments ?, i dont use wordpress so i couldnt help you im afraid

    Yes an image verification "Captcha" for comments will be enough to avoid the bots spams.. There is a plugin for that.. Could be found here.
    http://www.protectwebform.com/plugin_wordpress
    and I'm installing it right now.. wait for my confirmation.

    You can also change the settings and set them to approve the comments before they are shown in your website!

    Well... Its alright! Askimet seems to be working now. Its blocking all the spam comments. But, I am still surprised!!!

    Do we have these many spamming bots around!!! lol.... If these plug ins become dead for one week. Then, my blog will have its database more than the given size!!! huh! Duh!!!

    Hey! Whats the catch mate?? You are asking me as if you are marketing that plug in.

    However, I trust you, dude! So, I am going to try and I will post the review after using that for at least 2 days!

    Thanks for that!

    Yeah! But, I think its not fitting to your design dude!! You should consider changing either the chapcha colors or the blog template.

    You can customize the colors while you are creating it.. I'll try to modify it once I have some free time..

    Well.. still its not so good looking for me. Its just like plain words. There should be something like the Digg.com has. It has a really great captcha.

    btw, Askimet is working for me now. So, its alright!
