B2 OR 3

EN: Warning: This post is over two years old, so it's possible that the views, opinions, links or instructions reflected on it do not correspond with the way I think now or the way things currently work. I have evolved (and so have the World and the Internet), so it might be advisable to just take this entry for a glimpse into the (my) past. :)

ES: Atención: Este artículo tiene más de dos años de antigüedad, de modo que los puntos de vista, opiniones e instrucciones que se vierten en él pueden no corresponder con cómo pienso ahora o cómo funcionan las cosas en la actualidad. He evolucionado (y también lo han hecho el mundo e Internet), así que probablemente lo más recomendable sería entender esta entrada como un simple reflejo del (de mi) pasado. :)

I’ve spent aaaaaall day long trying to do something effective against comment spam, not only in this B2 installation, but also in the ones I’ve got with MT and WordPress. Because nope, it’s not that easy.

SPAM SHOULD BE PROHIBITED BY LAW, SPECIALLY COMMENT SPAM, IT ATTEMPTS AGAINST EVERYONE’S BASIC RIGHTS :mad:

Sorry about the overexcitement, but I mean it: I find it really, really annoying. It’s already on the top 10 of the two billion things that annoy me :tongue:.

As far as B2 is concerned, I know the cliché: “change to WordPress”, but I DON’T WANT TO, puñetas. No me da la gana :mad2:. I like B2 a lot, B2 hack forums included, and WordPress gets spam too: I’ve got it installed somewhere else.

For the time being, I managed to deal with spam without feeling tempted to close comments for the xth time, particularly in this site you are reading right now.

So if you are also one of those obstinate B2 lovers and are even more fed up with spam than me, you
may find this site pretty useful
. Tusen takk, by the way.

Anyway, if you are thinking about other management systems, Textpattern sounds interesting too…

And this is all so far. I will put more post-related smilies and links later, I’m exhausted right now :dead:.
