Huge Number of Spammers Removed

The anti-spam solution is working again and the ‘Wizard’ has combed the site and removed approximately 400-500 spammers from our midst. I’ve also setup an automated process (with human verification) which will go through and check recent signups and mark them as spammers if it considers them so.

If you’re browsing the site and come across someone who’s clearly a spammer, you can help the system to learn who’s spam and who’s not but clicking the ‘Report Blog and Author’ menu bar (if you’re logged in) located under the Wangguard heading.

I’ve also made some changes server-wise and we are now on an upgraded server with extra RAM and speedier (SSD accelerated!) hard drives. Hopefully the sites load a bit quicker – they seem to so far.

At some point in the not too distant future I’m going to make a start on some new developments here, so if there’s features you want to see added, you better let me know in the comments :-)

  1. Hey there! Thanks for the smooth run for all those weeks and weeks of no issues on the word press site! :-)

    This function may already be available, but I’m not aware of how to access it, but I used to like the thing we had on the original dear diary where we could look up who was reading our diary with their ip address listed. Is that something we have/or could have on the word press site?

    Otherwise, I’m very happy with how things are set up right now. It’s workin’ for me!

    Thanks!

    • Hi there,
      I’ll look into this in the coming weeks. There’s no facility at this stage so I’ll have to write a WP plugin to do it – or see if there is one available
