Every time I update Spam Karma it takes significant tweaking to get it to work. Today, it's just plain dead. This is a real problem since I had been recommending Spam Karma to everyone with WordPress as the ultimate comment spam solution. But I can't do that any more. Rather than concentrate on the WordPress future, version 1.5, it seems like retroactive functions are more important to Spam Karma development. In fact, it seems like adding functions that deal with past comments have been prioritized over getting the spam filtering system to work correctly on new incoming spams. Ever since upgrading to version 1.11, for instance, I no longer get the comment content in my deletion digests. In this latest version, I'm led to doubt that the comment body is even processed for spam criteria. Well, I've had it. The code is a mess and the latest version (1.16) breaks my WordPress install. There doesn't seem to be any regression testing involved in the releases, which are way, way too frequent to have received thorough testing on all of the WordPress versions and configurations that it's supposed to support. I guess this means I'm back in the spam filtering game. Expect something new from me soon, since I'm sure I won't be able to tolerate hand-moderating every comment that comes through here for that long. Four new spam comments appeared while I wrote this.
