WordPress Analytical Spam Filter Plugin

The WordPress Analytical Spam Filter Plugin blocks comment, trackback, and pingback spam. It uses multiple methods of spam detection without challenging the user with obstacles such as captchas, math problems, etc. This is a low overhead plugin that begins blocking spam as soon as it is activated. It is compatible with caching plugins as long as the user has JavaScript enabled.

Logic is used to identify spam comment submissions. No user interaction is required. The spam blocking mechanisms work transparently behind the scenes. Most visitors, e.g. humans, will require longer than a few seconds to read a post and comment so any comments submitted within a short time threshold are identified as spam. Comments containing a large number of links are flagged as spam. The plugin uses an encrypted code and a honeypot to filter robotic submissions. All field names added by the plugin are randomized to prevent detection based on a source code signatures.

The plugin also blocks spam messages submitted through the WordPress Contact Form Plugin.
