After a busy and (mostly) fun Friday / Saturday, I woke up to see about 50 pending comments on my blog. Briefly wondering if I had posted about my adventures and become some hot new cool bed of awesomeness on the internet, I saw that it was just spam comments on the blog. damn. (Disappointed ARRRRRRR)
I didn’t have to search far for help, though. Actually, I didn’t have to search at all. I didn’t even have to get out of bed, or even put pants on. You all wanted to know that, right? Oh.. Sorry… Moving on… Right there in the plugins section is Akismet, which I had heretofore ignored. Lo and Behold, it is a comments spam filter without the dreaded captcha crap. Installed, spam comments moderated & deleted, back to life as normal.
