Spam fighting

I used to fight spam in comments here using a simple blacklist, which contained words that only spambots used and that were hence forbidden here. That worked pretty well. Now, however, I seem to be locked in some sort of epic struggle with a spambot who posts very similar posts, but has an astonishing variety of expressions at its disposal and thus manages to slip through again and again.


First of all: Sorry it took so long, I finally put up a PDF version of the slides of my presentation on March 27th, 2010 about my bachelor thesis. The movie in there won’t play, this being PDF and all, but it really is just the same as in my last blog entry about this, minus the “real” part because that just didn’t look good enough to be projected with a huge beamer.
