They get spammed a lot, but the Spam Karma plug-in catches it.
I also use this captcha plug-in so they have to type in a code to post.
I've had the stupid posts get through, "lksdflkjdf" -- like they're testing it.. but as soon as they throw in their Cialis link, it's toast. I just delete the what-appear-to-be-test-posts when they get through, but I haven't had any link spam get past Spam Karma, yet.
