We have noticed for some time a steady stream of Spam Comments added to our Blog entries and articles. We know that we are not alone in this and that it seems to be a ‘fact of life’ that certain individuals wish to waste their time in creating such trivia.
To minimise the disruption and annoyance these cause, these have been kept under control using a variety of methods and we recently changed our Blogging tool as a step to minimising this problem.
However one thing we did notice was that there were still Spam comments being entered even for content items that were no longer visible on the site.
We are sure that the majority of our visitors are not that interested in goods that these Spam entries advertise so have decided to take another step to trap more of these entries and introduce a further step in our line of defences.
Akeeba Admin Tools Pro has a very useful tool in the ‘Web Access Filter’ that can be used to assist in this task. [We are users of this product and recommend it to our users, as satisfied customers and for the excellent support provided.]
We hope that this will not create any problems to our visitors and will continue to monitor the situation as time goes by.
