GASP (Growmap Anti Spambot Plugin)
Prevents 99% of bot generated spam and helps with human generated spam too!
Bot spam is a growing problem for blogs. There are automated bots whose job it is to completely blanket blogs with irrelevant automatically generated comment spam. GASP is an integrated plugin of CommentLuv Premium which will help to eliminate 99% of comments that spambots create.
It works without the need of complicated captcha form additions and instead uses a simple checkbox which is generated in a way that almost all bots cannot see so when a spambot tries to submit a comment, the checkbox is not checked and the comment doesn’t go through.
It also has optional heuristics which help to prevent human generated spam too.
It has the following features :
Complete control over the messages the plugin shows
You can see an explanation of what could cause a comment to be considered a bot generated one and set your own text to be displayed should a comment meet one of the conditions.
Optional Heuristics for Preventing Human Spam
You can help to prevent human generated spam from even getting to your database by setting the plugin to warn users if their comment looks spammy. You have control over how many urls can be in a comment, how many words can be in the name, how long a user has to be on the page before their comment is accepted and even how many words they need in their comment.
Integrated advanced trackback validation
Prevent trackback spam with the integrated validation routines which check to see if the trackback was sent from a valid IP or that the trackback post contains your permalink or site url. You can enter words or phrases that are always considered spam and you get to choose exactly what happens to the trackback if it is suspicious.
Trackback Log page and dashboard widget
Easily see all trackbacks sent to your site in the dashboard widget and examine every trackback validation path in the dedicated trackback log page.
