My reborn blog has been up for about a week and I already got comment spam. Word travels fast.
But I won’t get mad; I get glad… to report the sites of the spammers to Google’s spam report form.
Silly spammers: Your comments won’t see the light of day since I use comment moderation. Also, WordPress uses nofollow attribute on comment links.
Update: I did some research on how to fight comment spam. Learned that CAPTCHAs are big no-nos due to inaccessibility issues. Then found out about akismet, which is already included as a plugin with my WP installation. All I had to do was activate the plugin, then enter the API key I got from registering for an account at wordpress.org. Let’s hope this helps.
