As of late, I haven't had a lot of time to chase after spammers, so – despite of anti-spam captchas and everything – a couple of my wikis have been overgrowing with spam. One after the other I've been closing them down to anonymous edits, even closing down user registration alltogether, but some a little too late.

Since I moved my LDAP wiki over from DokuWiki to MediaWiki, I've been burried by a daily torrent of spam. Just like with my tropical timber investments wiki, the ReCaptcha extension (with pretty intrusive settings) doesn't seem to do much to stop this shitstream.

Zimbra learns ham and spam by sending it to certain mailboxes. For our setup, this doesn't work (easily), because our server is configured to always send mail to another SMTP server and not do any local delivery. I did that, because our zimbra server is not actually on the domain it thinks.

If you've never heard of reCAPTCHA before, reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service that helps to digitize books, newspapers and old time radio shows. I'm using reCAPTCHA on this and other blog to protect myself from automated spam comments. I'm also using it on some of my MediaWiki sites to protect myself from wiki spam.
