I am often getting around 500 spam comments to this blog to moderate every day.
I’ve done a few things in an attempt to stem the tide.
I’m too lazy to go look for WordPress plugins or anything, so I am just editing the PHP code directly myself.
to present a much more condensed list of spam.
Here’s the spam I’ve had in the last 5 hours:
click for bigger version
which would display the entire comment along with two lines of borders around it.
This lets me handle spam about 4x faster I would say. Along with presentation, the code also sorts the spam by the name of the sender.
So I can scroll right past the “Buy *” section nice and fast.
It also defaults everything to “(*) Spam”, which saves me a good couple of minutes on those long, 500+ lists. I really should look into WordPress anti-spam stuff.
Does anyone out there have any recommendations to help me save some time?
