I installed WordPress along with a few add-ons to combat spam. Both are for registered and non-registered members posting comments. I added a standard Captcha as well as a mathematical challenge question (5 + what = Eleven). I have tried different Things and software, but the result is the same. I receive daily spam emails.
It serves the spammer no good, as I review all comments, but that does not stop comments.
Do spammers now have humans go to the same website daily and try to just sent out spam (unlikely) or is it just a software program. In the latter case, why is the WordPress add-ons not stopping spam comments.
Do others have the same issue? Did I miss something, when setting up WordPress?
