Spam wars

I’ve recently got loads of spam comments and bogus shoutbox comments on my blog, so I decided to try out the Bad Behavior plugin. It’s supposed to stop all spambots from even entering my page, so let’s see if it works. The installation was childplay, as with all WordPress plugins. The only downside is that there’s no interface for looking at the logs, so you actually have to use the mysql command line tool or some other database viewing tool for going through the plugin’s blocking log.
