As the most popular blogging platform, WordPress is a target of spammers. If you are an average blogger, your everyday job is to delete spam from you blog, even if you have an anti-spam tool installed.
What I develop, use myself and highly recommend to everyone is …
… is Advanced Textual Confirmation (ATC). It’s an universal antispam for PHP-scripts, inclusing phpBB2, phpBB3, WordPress and many others.
It’s hard to compare ATC with tools such as Akismet or Spam Karma. They are from different categories. Follow this funny story:
During the space race back in the 1960’s, NASA was faced with a major problem. The astronaut needed a pen that would write in the vacuum of space. NASA went to work. At a cost of $1.5 million they developed the “Astronaut Pen”. Some of you may remember. It enjoyed minor success on the commercial market.
The Russians were faced with the same dilemma.
They used a pencil.
Advanced Textual Confirmation is such a pencil. Install it now.
