Battling Spam

closePlease note: This post was published over a year ago, so please be aware that its content may not be quite so accurate anymore. Also, the format of the site has changed since it was published, so please excuse any formatting issues.

While MovableType has done a pretty good job of stopping spam comments from making it through, it still has a hard time with certain types of spam. To help save me from having to deal with the spam comments that MT lets through, I’m setting up filters. Below is a list of strings that will trip the spam filter, so don’t put them in your comments (unless you want them to get junked).

  • yello pages
  • Nice site. Thanks
  • Very good site. Thanks
  • Yhanks you
  • Hi, my sites

  1. Thank you for the warning. Are these exact strings or fuzzy? I mean, how close can we get before we trigger it?

    This will make it an even better site, although, it has always been a Nice site. My sites aren’t Very good sites.

    Merry Christmas! ^_^

  2. They’re exact, as you can see.
