* I have concerns about usin' this method fer spam detection. There are many legitimate circumstances that will fail this test, we'll keel-haul ye, and dinna spare the whip!
And o' course, there are plugins fer WordPress which fill in th' gaps. And hoist the mainsail! I’d say that fer MT users, this should be an excellent tool t' add t' yer arsenal o' anti-spam measures, avast. WP users wishin' t' add more anti-spam features have plenty o' options available.
Personally, I find that betwixt th' blacklist/graylist and th' open proxy checks, WordPress catches most o' th' spam on its own. I’m usin' a couple o' homegrown plugins, but don’t have so much t' do with detectin' spam, as with how t' handle it once it’s been detected.
