We are Fighting Spam!

Your rating: None

Vacation Rental Referrals newsIt happens to all websites - visits from spam bots and spammers trying to post spam or send it through other forms.
When it first happened to us, we've implemented CAPTCHA (word verification) that many sites use.  Visitors had to complete the CAPTCHA before sending a message or adding a comment.  This system worked great against spam bots, but not necessarily against spammers.  Sure, we can always block such person from visiting our site again, but we did not like the fact that the message was sent and a member received it.  In addition, we were not happy with the fact that ALL visitors had to complete the word verification (CAPTCHA).
Last week we have implemented a new filtering system in order to avoid and block such messages - Mollom. If a message triggers the spam filter, it will not be sent.  Most of the time there will be no CAPTCHA challenge for the visitor to complete.  CAPTCHA will only appear if the filtering system is not completely sure that the submitted comment / message is spam (or completely sure that it's a good content).
