If you have a web site you can help in the fight for free and no effort other than pasting in some code.

Tuesday is day two of the Five Days of Project Honey Pot Announcements.
Yesterday we announced QuickLinks which allow even more people to help
with the Project. Today we are announcing that Project Honey Pot has
begun tracking a new kind of online beastie: Comment Spammers.

If you're not aware, comment spammers crept up from the depths in the
last few years. They are robots are running around the internet leaving
their comments on feed back forms, blogs, and forums. The purpose is not
only to drive traffic to the sites when people visiting the forums click
the links, but also to increase search engine rank by increasing the
number of back links to their site.

To learn more about how we're tracking comment spammers, please visit:

We turned the system on only a little over a week ago and already have
caught more than 600 unique IPs engaged in comment spamming. We expect
that number will dramatically increase over time. If you haven't done so
already, install a honey pot or add a QuickLink to help trap comment
spammers. If you've already installed a honey pot there's nothing you
need to do. The form traps necessary to catch comment spammers are
likely already being delivered to your honey pot. Login to your account
and check out your Dashboard to see what comment spammers you've helped

As always, if you're prefer not to get these updates, simply login to
your Project Honey Pot account and switch off notification emails under
the settings tab. Stay tuned for our big mid-week announcement tomorrow.
Until then, make sure to let your blogging friends know there's a new
way to track comment spammers and we need their help!
