What’s going on?

The last three weeks I’ve been doing some other things than working on uClassify.com. I really needed a break to regenerate some energy and inspiration. During this period I’ve been talking to Roger Karlsson about what we should develop next on uClassify.

uClassify HTML forms

We know that there are a lot of cool classifiers being built but not many of them finds their way to the public in a web application. We believe that the reason is the last barrier – using the API and to do that you need to write code. Our plan is to allow users who doesn’t have the time to learn and use the uClassify API, to simply copy and paste a HTML form snippet to any site.

We also want to publish some uClassify code libraries in different languages. One of our users, Alex Popescu, is currently implementing a Python library.


In the beginning of January we released TrollGuard, a free WordPress spam filter plugin that uses uclassify.com. So far we have not had many users but recently it was featured on KillerStartups.com and since then we have an increasing number of users.

A very big thank you to Pacuraru Ovidiu who has given incredibly good feedback which led to an upgrade. We are looking forward to receive more feedback from all of you as our goal is to make the best spam filter plugin.

TrollGuard – protects your blog from spam comments

Me and Roger have just finished TrollGuard – an anti-spam plugin to WordPress 2.7 or later.

The plugin is in Beta and we are aware of some lacking features – however we would greatly appreciate if someone out there wanted to do some testing for us and come back with feedback!

This has been a small sideproject we did during our Christmas holidays using the uClassify API. We think it’s really cool that in less than a week we were able to setup a new Akismet service. Previous uClassify web applications have mostly been for entertainment, this plugin will acctually do something helpful – protect blogs from spam comments.

We are also confident in the accuracy of TrollGuard as similar classification technology has been used in Cactus Spam Filter since 2004.

Well now it’s up to you to test it! What isn’t working? What features are missing? Let us know!

Check TrollGuard out!
