If you feel this article is still valid and requires updating, you can use the contact form to let me know. However, I make no guarantee that it will get updated.

Since setting up filtering using my .htaccess file I have managed to block 3308 comment and referal spammers. Also, Spam Karma is now only producing around 1 digest a day of comments it has sent to hell, rather than the five or six that I was getting befroe my .htaccess filtering.

I have noticed, however that a few spam comments have slipped through the net. These seem to be based around cartoon pornography, so I think I’ll have to dust of my regular expression knowledge and get some new filters set up in Spam Karma.
