Comment Spam

Like so many others, I’ve been hit quite a bit lately by blog comment spam, so I finally took a few minutes to install Jay Allen’s MT-Blacklist plugin (and the associated Comment Spam Clearinghouse blacklist). It has dramatically simplified the process of cleaning out the increasing number of existing spam comments (all having links to adult web sites), and I’m assuming it will block the next spamming attempt in the next couple of days. I’m looking forward to Jay implementing his XML-RPC-based blacklist sharing feature to make keeping the blacklist up-to-date simplier, but in the meantime all I can say is “thanks Jay!”
