Akismet is now turned on and should prevent much spam occuring on the forum. This is on as a trial basis. If everything works well, we'll leave it running.

Quote:How does it work?

When a new comment, trackback, or pingback comes to your site it is submitted to the Akismet web service which runs hundreds of tests on the comment and returns a thumbs up or thumbs down.

Note: The service does not stop spammers from registering in the first place however. This will be looked at soon.

If you find your valuable comment was accidentally marked as spam by Akismet, let me know.

More to come.

I suggest using reCaptcha for the signups.

GJ on Akismet, although I'm not sure how well it will work against what seems to be very targeted spam, altho the same goes for reCaptcha, if it's manual spam, it won't be stopped by it.

Akismet isn't right for us, so that's removed.

@recaptcha, yes, I'm looking at that. There's a bunch of stuff for me to do.
