*Spam Protection - Human Verification*
Have you thought about or do you have any spam protection on comments?
I've noticed one of our posts got over 600 spam comments, and a post on the new PlanHQ.com site has just got its first spam.
Requiring one of those human verification codes when you post would be great.
* Add a link: So that the commentor name points back to the website in the link field, geat for google and linking together the blogosphere conversations
* Add new comment: This should go below the existing discussion to encourage people to read the discussion first then make their coment

There is some code to link into Kismet, but I think an account needs to be set up on a site by site basis.
Whoever it was who made this feature, can they post some instructions?

Thanks for the link. If it wold be possible, could you make the documentation a little more detailed. I have no idea where in the config file to put the code, or where the config file is ( I assume it is the one under CMS)?
I have put my code in as follows (obviously substituting 'key' for our key):
it doesn't seem to do anything when I add ?showspam=1 to either the end of the blog url or our main site url. Now I'm confused... Is there another step?

This is quite urgent as we have 900 or so spam comments and it's spiraling out of control. It looks like a simple fix, it just doesn't seem to do anything!

There are no 'quick fixes' for this. Even with the Akismet spam protection on our site, we are getting a good 20 - 30 spams a day which I delete several times a day.
We are going to need to introduce some sort of 'human verification' steps to prevent this.
In the mean time, I'd suggest you simply disable page comments (I've done this on a number of our heavily spammed pages)

The config file mentioned is the _config.php in your project specific folder. Sorry for any ambiguity.
