Thank you for your wonderful plug ins, which have been so helpful.

However, links rejector seems to have been hacked or something, suddently I'm getting spams again, see this example

Please tell me how I can fix this, thanks!

Yes I agree with you. After I installed the Textual Confirmation Code, spam vanished. I installed it on 3 sites. Starting a couple of weeks ago I started getting a lot of spam on all 3 sites.

It seems that the spammers found away around it. Evil or Very Mad It's unfortunate, because I was really happy. Now I'll have to go find another tool to prevent these pain the a** spammers!

Maybe they'll upgraded Textual Confirmation Code to fix the problem.

Sorry, I was on vacations and wasn't able to react immediately. Just to make sure: you have problems with Links Rejector, not Textual Confirmation. Right?

If yes, please drop me a note when a spam message appears again, so I could look at it.
