After an unsuccessful first attempt to protect my blog using a captcha control, I’ve decided that more drastic measures were needed as spam was persisting. So after doing a small research I came across Akismet. Akismet is a blog plug-in that checks you blog’s comments using web services and returns if the comments are spam or not. It uses an internal database that is continuously updated from the bloggers that use it.
Let’s hope that this will work.
