You probably don’t know, but I’m working with some other Fedora contributors on a Fedora install of WordPress MU. The thing is, for a spam solution, all of it has to be open source, so Akismet or reCAPTCHA won’t work. So I ask you, Fedora users and contributors. Firstly, is spam an issue on your blogs? If so, what do you use for anti-spam on your self-hosted WordPress blog? Leave a nice little comment.

Spam used to be an issue for me until I started using wp-spamfree. It’s the best anti-spam solution out there.
WP-SpamFree is pretty good, though it’s not right for some people and has some issues of its own.
Personally I use Bad Behavior. I also wrote it. Fedora packages are available, too. (They need a sponsor! Hint hint.)
Regardless of what eventually gets packaged in Fedora, remember that no one spam solution is right for everyone. Except, of course, for all spammers to be sent to the bottom of the ocean. 🙂
