comment spam & typekey

I’ve gotten a few comment spams lately (just enough to be annoying). Typepad offers an option to require a typekey before being allowed to comment. If you have a typekey account, then you simply enter your username and password. If you don’t have a typekey, you would need to get one.

For more specific info on typekey, you can go here.

I’d really be interested in what people think about this (either comment or email). I’m considering using typekey, but will not if most responders object. Right now, comments is set to optional use of typekey if you want to try it out.

  1. Great way for someone to collect names and email addresses. There is nothing to stop Typekey from disseminating this info. I’m supposed to believe they won’t just because they say so? DTA (Don’t Trust Anyone) I get enough SPAM!

  2. Hmm. I went there and thought, OK, I’ll just sign up; however, the member name I commonly use is already taken and it is very rare = so I may be already signed up or not. Sorry about the spam hits – those cursed spammers.
