Spam free at last!

WPBlacklist 2.5 works like a charm, even if I do say so myself :p For the last couple of days, it has been catching and deleting all spam comments posted to my site without me having to lift a finger :-) I get e-mail notifications of comments deleted and what entry in the blacklist triggered the deletion and this lets me refine my blacklist even further by adding any missing stuff (like the author IP or e-mail) to my blacklist so that if the spammer tries again with a different set of URLs or something, he’d still get tagged by WPBlacklist. Yes, as you can see, I’m really pleased with my own work :p Now, all I can think of to add to WPBlacklist is a feature which would automatically harvest details such as author IP, e-mail, URL etc. from automatically deleted entries and add them to the blacklist so that I don’t have to even worry about doing that bit manually based on the e-mails that I receive. That’s not a top priority at the moment though since so far WPBlacklist 2.5 has been 100% effective in combating all comment spam posted to my site …
