Spam Commenters Are Good At Math

Well the math comment plugin worked for a few weeks. But in the past few days I’ve been hit by a surge of spam comments. Too bad. It’s such a simple and elegant solution. I was really hoping it was going work.

        Edward, I’ve just recognized your pingback and was wondering if you are you sure that your spam comments are real comments and not trackbacks/pingbacks? If it is trackback spam, check out the section “Other Plugins for Spam Protection” on my plugin page.

        Michael: You may be right. I had not considered that possibility. I’ll definitely install the trackback spam plugin. Thanks for the head’s up.
