Last night I got 2500 spam comments, which is a lot for me. Spam Karma 2 caught ALL of them, but I don’t like giant logfiles of spam comments, so I have just upgraded to Bad Behavior 2. UPDATE: As the author of the plugin notes, this is a pre-release version.
I sometimes wonder if Bad Behavior blocks legitimate comments or prevents use of the email form. If you’ve ever been blocked from leaving a comment, please let me know. Otherwise I’ll assume everything is cool. Thanks!
UPDATE: Apparently I need to also add a line to WP-CACHE to enable protection of cached pages with Bad Behavior 2. Oops…no. Very much no!
