Why so much of it on this forum?

The spam really sucks. We have recently made our reporting better with the Akismet plugin we're using and so far it's been helping. Some new types of spam still get through (4-6 posts) each day that our admins clear out.
Another thing we're trying is to allow one vote to flag as spam rather than the 2 we had it set to before.
Rafi! And why not use, for example, fail2ban to block robots by IP?
A very effective tool
Hmm, haven't heard of that one - thanks for the tip! We are using Akismet which uses IP information. A lot of times when we investigate what snuck through, Akismet reports it's a new form of spam that they had not registered. Has to be a way to improve that.
