How to Avoid Comment Spam


Recommended Posts

I recently added the PW Comments module to a site. Right now I have it set up to moderate all comments. I have Akismet turned on and the Akismet key entered.

Today I received a comment with probably 50 links in it. I'm wondering why such an obvious spam comment wasn't flagged immediately as spam.

Is there anything I can do to tighten things down to weed out obvious spam?

I think it was submitted by a person rather than a bot. Not sure. 

It would be nice to have an option to exclude urls in the comment text or possibly limit it to 1. 

It seems like the Akismet filter isn't working. I can't believe it would let that comment through without flagging it. I have the option checked in the comments field and a key entered in the module.
