I know that spam can be a real pain for blogs, so I decided to see what I could use for anti-spam for this blog. I’ve had blog spam in the past before, so I definitely needed to find something. I came across Peter’s Custom Anti-Spam Image Plugin for Wordpress.

It wasn’t working for me at first, but I figured this out to be because I hadn’t installed the php gd extension. This was an easy fix on debian:

apt-get install php5-gd
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Other than that little hitch, the anti-spam image works great!
