Does the name Bad Behavior ring a bell with anyone?
I’ll bet it does with the bloggers out there. If not, where’s your head?
This is an anti-spam option, for the record.
Here’s the problem with spam bots.
Captcha’s work, usually, but those dirty spam bots are still eating up your bandwidth. So if a [b]spam bot[/b] hits your site 1000 times before giving up, how much bandwidth did it just eat up and waste.
Bad Behavior is one of the leading anti-spam solutions in the blogging world, and has enjoyed great success. We’re pleased to be able to offer the same cleansing feeling for your Sphinx portal and forums.
Not familiar with what Bad Behavior is or does?

This Add-on for Sphinx is now available in the downloads area located in our community
To put it blunt, I hate spammers. Hate is a strong word, and one that is taken too lightly most of the time. I kid you not, I’m not taking it lightly. Not whatsoever. They are the absolute scum of the earth. In our always evolving efforts to help protect your sites, we decided to make the port of Bad Behavior. Which I will admit, I am a big fan of.
Granted nothing is perfect, but the more layers of resistance you can add, the better off you are.
So give it a whirl, and see what you think. Then enjoy surfing your site, while Bad Behavior quietly works its magic in the background.
