10. SpamShiv Spam Protection

Jackals build automated bots and spiders to crawl through the world wide web looking for vulnerable email addresses to add to their spam lists. Generally, the victims are unprotected “mailto” links. MailTo links are incredibly useful and often necessary to our sites. So how do you protect them from being harvested and siphons by ne’er-do-wells?
Commonly the bots and spiders are looking for the two tell-tale signs of an email address – the “@” and the following “.” The solution lies in finding ways to mask an email addresses from harvesters, siphons and phishers, while retaining the intended functionality of the “mailto” link. There are options like using HTML entities or using javascript, and this plugin will take care of that for you.

13. Delete Spam Daily

This plugin schedules a daily event using wp_cron that deletes all comments marked “spam” in the database, then optimizes the comments table.

Brief reason why I made such a low-tech plugin:

Akismet catches all the spam, but when I was looking at the size of my backups one day, I noticed that there were large numbers of comment spam across several sites that were undeleted and they made the databases fairly large. So I setup a cron job on my server that deletes the spam.

14. Spam Karma 2 Blacklist Ban

Once an IP address is knee-deep in Spam Karma’s blacklist, Spam Karma will never approve a comment from this IP, no matter how often it tries.

Unfortunately, many of these IPs don’t stop trying, thus wasting your bandwidth and server resources.

This small plugin bans them.
