Blocker and Comment Spam

Projects and Code100 words1 minutes to read

Something has just occurred to me: I haven’t had hardly any comment spam for a few months now. Did the spammers forget about me? I doubt it. Does Blocker have another side-effect that I hadn’t realized earlier?

I’d appreciate any feedback from other Blocker users on this. Have you guys noticed a sharp decline in the comment spam you’ve been getting? Are you still having problems with certain ReferSpam entries? Are you getting more or less spam email in your inboxes?

Input and feedback would be most helpful. I’m also open to ideas and suggestions to make this script better.
