Simply take your normal textarea comment box (which looks like this):
That's it! Why does it work? Simple. The comment spam you get on your blog isn't left by "real" people. The comment spammers write scripts that automatically scan web pages for a text area field and a form.
They use PHP and automatically post to the form, filling the textarea with their spammy content, which then appears on your comments list.
This solution is simple, elegant and sure beats the hell out of making your visitors type in hard-to-read CAPTCHA text every time they want to leave you a comment.
If you don't run Wordpress and can't run Akismet on your blog then give this a try. In 99.9999% of cases you wont get any computer-generated comment spam ever again.
