I love the Askimet plugin for WordPress, if I didn’t have that, I’d probably not even have a blog. Since I activated Askimet, it has caught 14,820 spam comments for me without a problem. But now, after a couple months of being great, I’m starting to see a little bit of a problem. In the last 6 hours, Askimet has let 8 spam comments slip through. And these weren’t just mild comments, these were the hardcore, nasty ass kinda text & links that you definitely don’t want to see on the frontend of your site.http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/more/specials/fortunate50/2007/Do I need to update Askimet, or have the damn spammers just found a way to get around the Askimet plugin?
Nope, don’t need to update. I just checked the Askimet site and version 2.0 is the latest release of the plugin, so it looks like the spammers have just found a way to get a little tricky and get through the Askimet wall with new comments. Those dirty bitches.
