Well plenty of people are having probably the same issue as I have, too many blog comments from bots. Akismet or any other plugin currently doesn’t have a big database with ips to block proxies. Best way to prevent spam is to have some of the following implementation in the future versions of wordpress, i propose the following:
- Big database with proxies, preventing anyone from those. Most of the times bots use them.
- Domain holder from email to be dns checked, any address that doesn’t responds means it’s fake
- If it’s passing all 2 steps above, another one is to implement an email verification system
So what do you think about these 3 steps that could be created really quick (except the scraping of public proxies).
