Introducing Speakeasy, the ExpressionEngine Anti-spambot

Published on 10th November, 2009

Speakeasy is a new ExpressionEngine extension and plugin to help in the ever-tedious fight against spambots.

It enables your visitors to self-moderate their comments via email, integrating seamlessly with ExpressionEngine’s built-in commenting system to defeat spam bots, and relieve the burden of clicking on all those viagra links.

Speakeasy has already proven its worth on the Greentech Media website, for which it was originally developed, filtering the wheat from the chaff of thousands of spam bot submissions. A big thanks to both Greentech Media, and Vector Media Group for allowing me to publicly release Speakeasy.
