I operate a few blogs. I get some of the stupidest, most F..ed up spam you can imagine. Terrible comment spinning and content that isn't even close to the post topic. If you own a blog you probably know all about this. Have you tried these plugins to help. Replace xx with tt hxxp://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sabre/ hxxp://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cookies-for-comments/ hxxp://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-captcha-free/ Sabre looks extremely powerful. What are your thought on these plugins. I'm new to blogging. So I think I should get some readers before I make it too tough to comment. So I left off Sabre. Anyway, hopefully these will help you. Or if they are not good for blog owners maybe you can tell me why and I can get rid of them. For a known Scrapebox spammer this seems self defeating but, this forum has been a tremendous benefit to me. So I wanted to demonstrate that I can be useful to the community as well. And, some of the comments I read today were so pathetic I wanted to tell the blog owners about these plugins but, I refrained. I'd rather share here. Please let me know if there are reasons to not have these installed.
