Good grief. Have you taken a look at your comment spam folder?
It’s kind of ridiculous how much comment spam gets generated! How do you even spam comments in the first place? There’s got to be a better way for WordPress to keep this from happening than just throwing them in a folder.
I guess I am glad they catch all this stuff instead of me having to wade through it every day; however, if there was a legitimate comment that actually gets caught in there, how would I ever find it? I know I have had it happen and luckily I caught it early enough before the folder exploded.
Why do people do this in the first place? How do companies combat this crap?
Do you have your comment controls set to “you have to leave an email address & you have to leave a website”? You can put some filters in there. My SPAM rarely gets over 25.
I will have to check those options out.
