The popular anti-spam solution for WordPress and other platforms has just been given a facelift. Bad Behavior 2 is now in the wild and claims to have at most only one database call per transaction, can be measured in single milliseconds and now has the option to turn off blocking of legitimate users behind corporate proxies. Author Michael Hampton has been putting a lot of time and effort into this complete rebuild. I know because I’ve talked to him about it. (Maybe we need an interview with him… Whaddya think?)
Personally, I’ve moved away from Bad Behavior because of the proxy issues that were in version 1. At this point I’m pretty satisfied with my spam solutions so I have not had tried BB2 yet. I’d be interested to hear feedback on it. Feel free to post in the comments.
