Canned Spam vs. Spam Karma

The blog comment spam here on SuperAff has ramped up again. My new record is 300+ overnight. You have no idea how much p0rn and guru make money fast and adsense superkits and yada yada your eyes have been spared ;).

The good news is that Spam Karma is really holding well and only an odd few have snuck through, while 99% of the legit comments are posting live.

I find the secret to success with Spam Karma is continually adding common spam words to the blacklist.

Secret #2: Add .info domains to the domain blacklist. Sorry legit .info webmasters, but wowzers all the spam from .info domains is like a locust swarm from armageddon.

How to delete hundreds of spam comments quickly? It’s a trick I had to figure out:

Spam Karma >> Recent Spam Harvest >> Display 200 (change from 20) >> click Invert Checkbox Selection (beside Remove Selected Entries) >> Then eyeball the spam comments, uncheck anything that’s legit >> Now click Remove Selected Entries

Voila! 200 spam comments wiped out in one minute. Blog comment spam no longer consumes my time. Feel the power!


I've been trying to find my way online for more years than I care to admit.
