Kill comment spam

| Blogs etc. | 1 Comment

About a week or so ago, after having my poor and innocent blog being bombarded with tons and tons of aggravating comments spam, I wrote the following at the Movable Type Support Forum:

I have completely had it! My blog has been being bombarded so much lately by spam comments, that I do not know what to do. I spend more time deleting comments, adding IP-addresses to my banned list, and then rebuilding my blog, that it does not seem worth the hassle anymore. HELP! Regretfully, I am ready to close down business. After three wonderful years of blogging freely in such a fine world. Sorry, but I have to go... Now this world is getting ripped apart by spam terrorists, those jerks. I hope they burn up and die, all of them.

Since then I am happy to announce that I have discovered a fantastic Movable Type plugin called MT-Blacklist.

By using this you can kill comment spam dead in its track. Try it and you will like it, I am sure. What a great feeling.

Me too, I have started getting spam comments too. Mostly in old posts that no one would ever check anyway, and they have all been from insurance salesmen. I will try the new MT app! Thanks for the lead!
