My last spam blocker was coming up as an error for people when they were trying to comment from their phones, so I removed it. I have since been just deleting all spam manually so that everyone has a chance to comment, but now I’m (of course) getting over-run by hundreds of spam comments a day.
When I tried to implement one of those “smart spam blockers”, it ended up blocking regular people and marking them as bots…so I wasn’t a big fan of that either.
Does anyone still use the good ol’ “check this box if you’re not a robot” spam blocker? What’s it called? Seems like the best solutions to my problem right now.
If there’s anything drastically better, what is it and why??
