Comment Spam | November 3, 2003
As some of you may know, while I was away I got mildly hit by comment spam. A few of you were kind enough to email me suggestions on how to combat this, and after some playing around, I decided to settle on MT-Blacklist.
I chose the MT-Blacklist option because it seemed like the easiest solution to install. It didn't require any other MT plug-ins or template hacks which was great..
I did need have to get my host to install a perl module (Storable.pm) but was impressed that they did so with little or no fuss. And so my little comment spam filter is now merrily working away in the background and has already picked up it's first bit of comment spam. Horah!
