Spam Module

I just installed and enabled the Drupal Spam module for this site. I had left the “Create New Account” option available in case somebody reasonable reading this page wanted to join in on the fun. Unfortunately it was hijacked instead by a vile creature from the underbelly of society who thought he/she/it could use it for some unknown gain.

I already do a pretty good job of letting Anonymous comments go unpublished until I get a chance to look at the approval cue. Unfortunately I haven't looked in quite awhile and just now had to delete a few hundred spam comments.

The Drupal Spam Module should prevent me from having to do as much of this because it automatically identifies spam heuristically, looks for duplicate content, and can be trained to look for key words that I set manually. I have heard good things about it and decided to give it a try.
