Do you need a spam blocker?

Last Update: June 09, 2015

I've tried so many spam blockers, but up until now thousands still pass through. Obviously, the more famous you are on the net, then the more blocks you'll need.

Well, I definitely don't own a PR9, but I still get a hundred each day.

So, here is the joyous little plugin for you to experiment with Anti Spam, yep that's it Anti-Spam!

It's true to its name; since installing it, I've had zero spam and you don't even need to use that horrid and useless captcha.

Can you believe it, it even surpasses Askimet, which is also useless in my opinion, all the same I still have it load just in case.

(UPDATE: I've now taken the plunge to delete Askimet. Anti Spam is still working great and zero spam since writing this blog)

You can download it and then upload it via the link or find it in your WordPress repository.

Happy days to you all!

YES Sharon! I NEED a spam blocker... for a about a month now, my sites have been getting hammered by very long spammy messages multiple times a day (one site in particular) - and I have Askimet installed...

Quick question - Do I need to un-install Askimet before installing this one?

I know you say that you keep Askimet 'loaded', just in case, but just to confirm - do you mean 'installed'?

Thanks for this,
Steve ;)
