Today I enabled a honeypot or "red herring" form on this wiki. After doing this, I re-enabled discussion pages. So we'll see how effective the red herring is at stopping spam.

Today, I completed the TextCha feature of Aneuch. You can set questions and their corresponding answers in your config.pl file by populating the %QuestionAnswer hash.

This, in combination with the red herring form, should be a fairly effective deterrent against automated (bot) spam, however it will do nothing to defeat human-generated spam.

That is why the next thing I'm working on will be BannedContent. This will allow an administrator to set a list of regular expressions which will be banned automatically.

I have implemented the banned content feature. Site administrators can set the content to ban (regular expressions) and any edit not performed by an administrative user that matches the content will be rejected as spam.

I've loaded up the master BadContent file from MoinMoin, and am currently testing TextCha + Banned Content on the Aneuch Playground and on the main Aneuch site. If it's successful, then great!
