Okay guys, this got me thinking. I agree that humans are spamming your guestbook. Looking at it the last few days has shown a small increase (relatively speaking) in spam each day. I also have a forum site, and I'm happy that spammers haven't found it... yet.

I was thinking an AI-type filter would be great because it could learn new spam tricks and not be limited to things like keywords, IP addresses, etc. It would base it's logic on the human language. I found a very cool free tool called CRM114 (http://crm114.sourceforge.net/).
I wrapped a perl script around CRM114 and played with the messages you've been getting on your guestbook. After only a few training examples, it's doing really well on correctly labeling spam! Cool!
I've put this script online, and it's freely available (after all, CRM114 does all the work). You have to apply for an ID, but that's just to fight spammers from using it. Check it out. I'm really interested to see if it stops your spam!
The API and other stuff is located at http://crm-perl.maladorsoftware.com/.
Of course there will be some messages that are incorrectly labeled, so let me know of those messages using the form on the above page.
Everyone else is free to use it too! The more people that use it, the stronger the filter!
