Spammers are everywhere and whether we like it or not, we just cannot control the spams we get from these spammers, or can we? The truth is that we are fortunate to have spam filters around trying to block these spammers from getting into our websites. Wee, if you did not know anything about spams and spammers and spam filters, would you still build your site?
You have to make sure you are well protected. But how? Easy and here‘s how.
Using manual filters means you are going o manually filter the spams you receive from your site. Automated is done by your computer. They will be the one to handle the “filtering” of spams you get from the blog comments. This automated filters need to be updated and setting it up does not necessarily mean you won’t get any more spams in your blog site.
The use of CAPCHA makes it impossible for any computer to read it because it uses images which are written using an unfamiliar font. This is a good way for automated spammers. Only human can read this CAPCHA. However, sometimes, using this is not a very good idea because some users find it hard to read it and makes them impatient.
