    Hi guys :D

    I have a ridiculous problem with my blog, Those last two weeks I have seen I high number of spam comments, my analytics shows me a random visits from many countries, those visitors spend 30 seconds in my blog, I think that's some kind of automated comment software, If any of you guys knew about a plugin to stop this I will be very thankful to him :D

    p.s: I'm using wordpress as a blogging plateform

    Using a combination of Akismet + CloudFlare solves the problem, for me.
    CloudFlares takes over your nameserver and will display a CAPTCHA for known spam IPs before they can get in your website.
