Spam will get you no where!
Some idiot today decided to Spam the comment section of my Blog with advert links, nothing to do with Amateur radio, this is not the first time this has happened. So I have now taken action and set all comments to be moderated by myself before they are released. Just stupid people that have caused me to take this unnecessary lock out and create me more work than I need.
Spam as much as you want but they will be destroyed!
You have been warned !
It’s a real shame how some have nothing better to do in life than set on a computer and try to annoy others. What a sorry boring life some have.
Ignore them, don’t mention it, they bask in the glory of causing upset to someone, they’ll soon go away and play with other toys.
Can i borrow your spammers I do need a good bleed resister for cap of 4 8877. It is an old pole pig! 2amp @ 2200v
I use Google’s Captcha on my blogs.
If you want to add a layer of automation to the process,
A great 2-step method is to first check an ip against a ASN/IP Range spam ip blacklist. There are several IP blacklists available, most popularly the SORBS, DNSBL, and Spamhaus’s SBL+XBL & ZEN lists. For testing purposes you can check an ip against the above and a few more lists https://whatismyipaddress.com/blacklist-check
The second step is as pointed out in a previous comment, if they are a blacklisted ip, show them a google captcha. Just because they are on a blacklist, doesn’t mean they aren’t human, many people travel, come from distant lands, and use vpns, and share computers, but if they are in the list suspicion and an extra check is merited.
If the spam looked automated, a simpler way probably would be is to check the format of the Name & Callsign field, and error out if it isn’t proper.
