Comment Spam Filtering
Most web forms are targeted my spammers and bots. Most Blogging Platforms have their own ways of keeping the bots and spammers away. Wordpress uses Akismet for this process.Blogger has its own filtering mechanism to keep the odd ones out. Now Blogger improved its spam fighting mechanisms by integrating Google’s Spam Filtering Technologies into Blogger. Blogger will automatically detect Spam comments and move them to Spam in your Comment Inbox. The comments in the Spam Inbox are not visible in your blog. You can mark Comments as Spam and move them to the Spam Inbox.You can also mark comments as Not Spam that have been incorrectly classified or marked as spam and the comment will be immediately published on to your blog.
