  2. Latest nightly Matt? I’m on 1.5(1/6) and don’t have the guts. I’m not interested in cleaning spam up when it get’s here…I don’t want it period 🙂 Which is why Kitten is my flavour of the month right now.

  3. It’s seems like your site is a little broken. Every tab at the top of your page (except for Archives) goes to the same page. All I get is a list of your recent blog entries. Is this just me?

    I’m seeing the same thing, seems like a problem with the .htaccess rules but then again it could be anything, I’m sure that Matt will have it fixed up in a gif.

  5. The new built-in spam moderator indeed works flawlessly so far. I have never had spam plugins installed, since few latest wp build, *all* spams are caught into moderation. Nicely done.

  6. Catching spam in moderation still doesn’t solve the problem. Then you have to manually delete all of the spam it does catch and let me tell you, since there’s no option to select multiple comments to delete AT THE SAME TIME, deleting spam can be more than a little tedious. I was helping a friend implement the Trencaspammer plug-in and to delete over 3,000 comment spams by hand. :-/ Would have been much easier to have a “select all” option and then delete that way. My hand was cramping up by the time the time I was done!

  7. The only spam prevention I have in place right now is automatic moderation on entries older than one week. That works better than Spam Karma and Spaminator combined…

  8. Call me stupid, but I didnt see any mass deletion option in 1.2 or a straight to delete option for keywords in 1.5

    Anyways, I find the Comment Spam Words list does the trick 99/100, which is always nice to know

  9. Greg, in 1.2 you can “mass edit” comments, and search for IP/URI/content to handle cleanup. On 1.5 (CVS) there are now two Spam Words lists… one sends a comment to moderation, the other deletes it. You’d want to put your really obvious spam ones in the delete one, and the less obvious ones in the moderate one.

  10. My blog is still powered by beta (nightly) version of 1.1 with just 1 blacklist plugin. And I don’t have big probs with spam as people seems to have… Hmm… Good ol’ WP ^_^

  11. Can’t wait for 1.5 – thanks for getting this “bait” out there for spam bots to attempt to hit you. Anyone spammed using the 1.5 prerelease will only help the final customers avoid frustration! -kj-
