There are these robots that scan the Internet looking for blogs so they can add a comment to a post. These comments are advertisements. Spam for your blog.

Fortunately my WordPress evangelist Katie tipped me off to a wonderful WordPress plug-in called Spam Karma.

This nifty tool not only blocks comment spam but sends a nifty report with information about blocks…and it has a sense of humor, too!

    I love Spam Karma! Unfortunately, my work IP address is on a blacklist somewhere so I can’t comment on my own blog from work. Let’s see if I can comment on yours!

    I need to find one of these for Movable Type. I am about to lose my mind with the SPAM comments!!!!
