I’ve recently installed Spam Karma 2 in an attempt to mitigate how much comment spam I’m getting. None of it ever shows up on the site – the default WordPress install is good at catching comment spam. But suspicious comments just go into the moderation queue, where I have to sort through them manually, and that’s just not possible any more.

Spam Karma 2 automatically kills comments that look like spam – I won’t ever see them. Which means that there’s a slight chance that it will kill the occasional legitimate comment. If you have trouble commenting now, please feel free to email me – I want to know about problems so I can fix them. Hopefully this will make the blog easier to maintain without impacting legitimate discussion.
