Sometimes the world makes me sad. Once in a while I do check this newsfeed’s comments, and it’s pretty sad to find lots of random spam when I hope to find information or questions on the stuff I’ve posted. After deleting dozens of unwanted messages, I had almost decided to close the comment system when I notice this entry on Michael E. Gunn’s HollowCube.com, talking about MT-Blacklist. It’s a new, efficient MovableType plugin to block comments based on a blacklist, and it seems to work as a charm.
Time will tell if it’s enough, but now it looks like it’s perfect: my blacklist is already beefed up with a general all-purpose blacklist, basically because I’m too lazy to block comment by comment as new ones are posted.
And spammers, please die ktnxgg.
