Mollom Spam Filter — An Update

Mollom has been doing its job pretty well. In the last month it has caught over 1100 potential spam comments on the site! Where I had been engaged in daily cleanup of of anywhere from 20-50 spam comments, I have only had to “pick off’ a handful manually.

I guess the question is, have the members of this community found it easier or harder to use the site? Have you noticed any change?

Let me know.

Best,

Mollom Spam Filter

The NPC site was getting a fair bit of spam–mostly dealing with World of Warcraft gold–so we’ve decided to install Mollom to the site. Mollom is a spam catching service that will try and determine if your comment is a) spam, b) could be spam, or c) is spam and it takes appropriate action ranging from nothing, to a captcha challenge, to blocking the content.

Let me know at matthew [at] dogstar [dot] org if you see anything strange. Otherwise, happy posting!

If you are interested in how to install Mollom on a Drupal website, I have put together a short tutorial on my Nonprofits and Web 2.0 Site.

Thanks!
