Bye Bye Spam

I just installed Hash Cash, which is an anti spam plugin for WordPress.

Hash Cash protects this blog from spam by requiring the client to execute javascript which calculates a checksum of the content from a seed which is very hard to extract.

Since I installed it I haven’t got any spam comments :-).

The downside is that it disallows anyone who hasn’t got a javascript enabled browser to post a comment.

Now I still need to get some good means to combat trackback spam. Just putting them under moderation isn’t good enough for they keep coming
