My b2evolution Version: Not Entered

I think most of the anti-spam plugins in the plugin repository need to be updated for 2.x.

The spam problem is increasing by the day and the "Basic Antispam" shipped with b2evolution does not seem to work at all. At least it hasn't prevented several spam comments in the last week or two.

Anybody else being hit with a dozen blogspot.com spam comments a day?

Works in 2.* and I don't get comment spam. Note that if you're into trackbacks then it is NOT the weapon of choice because it does nothing there.

Are you using the antispam central blacklist system? .blogspot.com has been a keyword for a heck of a long time because of the THOUSANDS of blogspot spammers out there.

I thought there was also a captcha for v2.* but I can't find it so maybe it doesn't exist?

I have updated the anti-spam list, but I don't want to block the blogspot.com domain fully because unfortunately a lot of legitimate bloggers continue to use it.

I was thinking more along the line of Dr.Dave's Spam Karma 2 for WordPress. Something that is transparent to the end user and works on analyzing the comment for spamminess rather than require extra inputs from the user.

I used to use SK 2 in WP and it was quite fantastic in blocking out spam.
