My revenge on spammers

Among many other defences, I have just installed Spam Poison.

An article about “poison pills”: Poisoning The Spammer on Mail Msg (what seems to be a subsection of Internet Tips And Secrets) – this article is available on Developers subsection but with the title Spam: Poison Pill.

Fighting spam

I am now using James Seng's Bayesian filter for MT to fight spam in comments and trackbacks on this website.
If you see an entry with n comments but you are not able to read these comments, they were actually spam. I will try to fix this small bug soon.

About “Spam Killers”

I read a nice tutorial entitled “SpamAssassin vs. Spastic” about antispam tools on (as usual, comments are very useful).
I do not use a “Spam Killers” because I do not trust them enough. A few weeks ago, I received a message from a co-worker saying that he does not receive my e-mail at time cos it was killed by SpamAssassin (gone to his trash), which is not cool. Another example of the immaturity of this technology for the moment.
