CSPAM plugin

November 2nd, 2004

I need a lot more alpha testers. Please email me or leave a comment if interested. I do not want to release it for general download and thus the lack of a real release. Spread the word.

[EDIT] Come on, some more testers…please? :) If you are one of the plugin users…any comments?

    Would volenteer to help out, but to date I’ve only recieved 2 spams…so, uh, I don’t think it’d help much :\

    Hook me up!

    I just had to hack some code into my core wp-comments-post.php file last night to block a bunch of spams that were bypassing the usual checks. We’re probably going to add this particular hack into the core WP 1.3 code.

    I’ll give it a shot, I’m curious how you went about doing this, I was thinking of the saem thing the other day myself. I just switched to WP from Drupal and only once got spammed running Drupal for almost a year, however I have received over 50 WP spams. I’d love a solution for this.

    I’d also like to give it a shot. I’m just getting my WP blog off the ground (<15 entries so far) and I’ve already been comment spammed by a gambling site. This looks to be a lower maintenance & less comment-discouraging solution than another comment-authorization plugin that I’m looking at. Thanks!

    I wouldn’t mind helping to try it out – I’m getting about 20-100 spam attacks a day…

    i would like to test your new tool ;-) using WP 1.2.1

  7. Marc (3 comments.) says:

    I have used this plugin for about a month. Until recently the spam I receive has been light. In the last few days it has averaged 40-50 a day and the plugin has been working fine.

    I’ve been using CSPAM for about a week now. Tip to the testers: don’t try to test the plugin from your own IP address. ;) I think my spammer stopped coming around, but I’m not sure because it could be that CSPAM is just working that well and I don’t see the evidence.

    Which makes me want to suggest to Mark that you put in some sort of stat/feedback page somewhere.

  9. Mark says:

    There is one, though it is not for public distribution. :)
    It has been emailed to you.

  10. Mark says:

    Are you sure? This plugin has not been in production for that long. You might be thinking of the three strikes plugin.

  11. Hal (4 comments.) says:

    I know, but it’s an overall summary. I looked at it again before posting my comment and what I’d like to see is the ability to break it down by comments filtered by *my* site’s instance of CSPAM.

  12. Chris Boulton (2 comments.) says:

    Mark, I’m still up and running on I’d be interested in seeing the spam service statistics/summary page – specifically for my site to see what’s happening there.


  13. Chris Weiss (1 comments.) says:

    I’ve been getting ~20 comment spams a day. I’d love to give your plugin a try.

    Hey I’d like to try out this plugin, I keep getting spam on and off.. I thought I got rid of it, but just recently it came back hard, atleast 4 different spamers hitting me at once. I’ll try anything that can possibly help.

    You’ve no doubt seen my anti-spam plugin here, so it’s probably obvious I know a thing or two about spam. I’d be happy to alpha test yours, if you still need testers..



  1. Comment on comments
    Just a quick word about comments in this blog…

    I currently do not have comment moderation turned on, although I do require that name & email fields be completed, as I want make it easy for y’all to make & respond to comments. That being said, in …
