Comment spam

I just had an idea about comment spam. What if, in our blogs’ comment forms, we had a pulldown menu that asked “Is this spam?” that was automatically set to yes? As a temporary measure, at least, it would be an interesting way to get spammers to identify themselves as such.

    Julien, do you have Akismet enabled? I’ve found it to be very effective on my wordpress blog.

    Akismet is really good, but I like your idea too. As long as each blogger comes up with their own idea for how to defeat spam, spammers will not be able to circumvent everything.
