    Some of those captcha alternatives are great! Also, I didn’t know about some of those wordpress plugins.

  • Jade Robbins Says:

    Yeah those captcha alternatives really were interesting to me as well. CAPTCHAs are so easy, but so expensive for users.

    This isn’t a WordPress plugin but it goes with the theme. I ripped out the comments form on my blog and replaced it with a Flash app that submits right into the database. Now I can take out the comments.php file which bots use to inject comment spam.

    The downside is I don’t know of any way to easily install this. It would take someone who knew HTML pretty well and could upload all the AMFPHP files. It’s all pretty easy but not for the novice. The upside is that I haven’t had a single comment spam submission. Glory be!


    You have to scroll down to the bottom of the comments to see the ‘comment app’. Oh, don’t forget to turn on the sound. It’s cool but gets annoying real fast. :)

    Oh good idea to shut down comment spam. Truth is though I’ve never had a problem with comment spam using akismet but this stops the hassle of having to log in and clean out the spammy comments once and awhile.

    It works like this: A person has a product or service
    that they try to market and sell to other people. This is a useful way of knowing whether you are
    talking to the right person and if they might be interested on hearing your business proposal.
    Many people have sold on e – Bay and have made it into a consistent money maker.

    Maintaining recruiting efforts that are consistent with a company’s overall culture and brand is a recipe
    for recruiting success and improved retention. To get the loan at lower
    possible fee, military people must search for the fee that is made available by a number of lenders online.
    People who are working under the military services and defend the country
    are known as military people.
