Spam comments despite Akismet / Spam auto deletion?
Posted 23 June 2012 - 05:30 AM
I am receiving a lot of spam comments that get not filtered as spam by the akismet filter - any idea why?
If Akismet is working in general, i.e. some comments are properly detected as spam, it just shows that Akismet (like basically all spam filters) isn't perfect. There really is no such thing as a "foul-proof" spam filter. Any mechanism, any test can be circumvented by spam bots.

PW comments module has something similar, search for requireSecurityField on this page:http://processwire.c...types/comments/

@yellowled: Akismet does not recognise about a third of the spam comments, I just felt that this percentage is quite high and should be lower ... ?
