A: SPAM is a nuisance to say the least – it is estimated that there have been over 7 trillion SPAM messages! Checkerboard suggests installing a WordPress plug-in called Simple Comments – some benefits are below:
- Spambots are blocked before they fill up your spam folder
- Hackbots are blocked before they hack into your WordPress blog, and before they can register fake accounts
- No more worrying about spambots or hackbots
- The only plug-in that never blocks real comments – only spam
- Offers protection for various forms as well (see link for details)
One of our clients had experienced a large influx of spam in a short time – once we installed Simple Comments, the barrage stopped and they have not had this problem again!
