What is a good Spam blocker for comments?

Recommended Posts

I found a traffic tracker, now I need a decent Spam blocker recommendation, prefer it to be open source.

 

For now I have set up to require registration before commenting and set up all comments to require approval. If Spam still gets through I'll want a backup plan.

 

This is a business site, so Askimet will charge me.

My home page is Wordpress, it came with the hosting, wife liked it, so it has stayed for now. We have an OpenCart store behind the Home Page.

 

I plan on replacing the Wordpress page at some point, with a custom.

 

It just gets lots of spam hits, but 3D Captcha and requiring registration approval, has really put a clamp down on spammers ability to post.

 

This week, I had 4 spammers register through the 3D Captcha and had to deny registration, that's been it since I made this post in June.

 

Still it is best to learn HTML and CSS and customize that way. Especially OpenCart.
