Something that is not fun when you have a blog, it's when spammers come to my blog and leave a generic comment like those below:
I'm subscribing now
or worse, gibberish like this:
dfadf df dsf d adsfsdasd
My blog is nofollow so spammers don't get any PageRank juice. Fortunately, most people add to the post by writing a longer and usefull comment.
One solution is the Minimum Comment Length plugin.
The plugin is very simple. You can set a minimum number of characters and an error message:
Error: Your comment is too short. Please try to say something useful.
Of course, I don't tell them the minimum.
Make spammers work for their comments from now on! ;)
