Spammers on ISD

Some of you may notice older articles are getting resurrected by links to poker, porn, debt ‘relief’ or similar when you click on the ‘active topics’ button. As the only way to prevent this is to remove the ability for anonymous comments to be made (not something we’re about to do), you’ll have to bear with us when these links appear until we come and delete them. Boring but unavoidable. Apologies.

    Can’t you implement one of those funky ‘type the numbers in the box’ deelies for anonymous posting using PHP’s GD library or some such? Failing that, doesn’t Drupal have a CAPTCHA module for anonymous comment?

    Yeah, the number thing is something I considered too, but to be honest, I’m not sure that’s much different from turning off anonymous posting. I’ll consider it.

    I’m running an older version of Drupal right now. I’ve a week off next week and I’ll investigate an upgrade but I’m not sure if the module you mention is compatible with this. I’ll check it out, though.
