When I first launched the new groovyPost.com, I figured I was going to have the same problems I’ve had with other sites I built using phpBB. When I say problems, I mean post and comment SPAM. I’m happy to say the fears were for nothing being that the makers of the WordPress blogging platform Automatic have included a groovy Spam griller which for me, has kept the nuisance of Spam to a minimum.
The unique built-in process for handling SPAM in WordPress is called AKISMET. It took just 5 minutes to setup and tada, all SPAM blocked. It was a nice bonus when I found a plugin for phpBB as well. Very nice indeed!
Let’s just say Akismet has been busy. ; )
