Disabled comments on my blog earlier. 😕
It was interesting to set up Staticman but I think the spam I faced and actual no comments made it not really worth it.

@edgren Yeah, spam comments that are just there to link to their own websites.

@lyndon Ok. If you have built your own blog, I can recommend JayBizzle/Crawler-Detect[1]. It's quite effective.


@edgren Ah thanks! My site is a static one so this might not quite fit in with it. I think adding some kind of filter to detect spam or a kind of CAPTCHA would have worked but it's likely not worth the effort.
