Geek’s Spam Filter – Updated to Version 0.2

By Lowell Heddings on June 20th, 2007

I’ve released a small update to the Geek’s Spam Filter, the WordPress plugin that saves me time every day by deleting the most obvious spam before it goes into the Akismet queue. I used to have to filter through many hundreds of spam comments every day, and now it’s a maximum of 10-20 that get through on a daily basis.


  • Added URL to list of fields to check. Unsure of why I didn’t do that in the first place
  • Added a number of extra keywords to the list
  • Tested with WordPress MU

You can get the plugin at it’s download page:
