See Spam plugin for WordPress released

‍‍ל׳ שבט תשס״ז - Saturday, February 17th, 2007

I've recently been under attack by a lot of spammers, and have been a little worried that my spam filters may have been a little overzealous in blocking comments and trackbacks. I've been looking at Akismet's page of caught spam to make sure nothing got through.

However, finding that one comment that got lost has proven difficult among the mess of hundreds of trackback spam has proven tricky. Thus, I wrote a plugin, called "See Spam," based on Akismet and Spam Nuker that provides separate views for All Spam, Comment Spam, Trackback Spam, and Pingback Spam. Each view provides the ability to batch delete all comments or unspam individual comments.

You can download See Spam from the See Spam plugin section of the Software section.

Block spam harvesters

‍‍כ״ח תשרי תשס״ז - Thursday, October 19th, 2006

On my site, I have a few "special" pages who's only purpose is to ban bots that ignore robots.txt (or worse, use it as a hint for where "the good stuff" is!). Here's how I do that:

Spammed by millershemesh AT mikeage DOT net?

‍‍י״ב תשרי תשס״ז - Wednesday, October 4th, 2006

Someone's been forging millershemesh@mikeage.net as the return for virus infected spams. It's not a real address, and I don't use it. If you really want to email me to complain, you can, but I can't really do anything about it

Hiding E-Mail addresses with JavaScript

‍‍ז׳ מנחם אב תשס״ה - Friday, August 12th, 2005

Quick Overview

Many people put a link on their homepage to email them directly. This is done using a link with the form mailto:address@domain.com. The problem is that many spambots pick up on this sort of thing. This document will show how to hide an email from spambots, while displaying it to a user

How Do I?

Insert the following into your page wherever you want your email address to appear:

&lt;script type="text/javascript"&gt;<br />
&lt;!--<br />
varE=('email@' + 'domain.com')<br />
document.write(' &lt;A href="mailto:' + varE + '"&gt;' + varE +
'&lt;/a&gt;')<br />

This prints a link dynamically, but since most spambots don't process JavaScript, they can't see it. Also note that by creating the string using varE=('email@' + 'mikeage.net'), they can't see it by looking through the source.
