I know that there has to be some sort of mechanism out there to either block or prevent or do a better job of filtering out spam, but how?
I'm not a fan of the "guess the distorted numbers and letters" box, mostly because I have sometimes trouble figuring them out, and I don't want to discourage people from commenting.
So what works? Is it a WordPress plug-in I don't know about, blocking some words in comments or what?
Help me out!
