When I, in preparation for Freya, upgraded to WordPress 1.3, I didn’t have any spammer countermeasures in place for a few days. Which was of course just plain foolish! So the other day, after having heard reports of people getting hit with large amounts of casino and poker spam, I decided to install Kitten’s Spaminator (as well as a few other minor countermeasures), and I’m here to tell you it is teh g00dn3zz, as we say.
Today it’s been stopping a minor wave of spam dead in its tracks. Now I’m not entirely sure what it’s doing, but it’s doing it well.
