If you run a blog that accepts comments, you’re probably familiar with comment spam. You could manually verify all comments, but that gets cumbersome after some time. A better solution is using an automatic scanner to verify comments. Like “Mollom”:http://mollom.com/. Mollom checks your comments and provides CAPTCHAs if it’s not 100% sure (about 2% of all comments). This takes the hard work of removing spam out of your hands, with the reassurance that no good content will be blocked. More on the “How Mollom works”:http://mollom.com/how-mollom-works page.
Zend_Service_Mollom is a Zend Framework component that makes using Mollom dead simple. Offcourse, even if you don’t use the full Zend Framework for your website, it can also be used as a standalone component.
Yesterday marked the release of 1.0.0, which was immediately followed today by 1.1.0, after feedback from the Mollom team.
