Spammers Hitting Me Like Mad

Well, thank goodness I got the new version of MT installed, along with the new version of MT-Blacklist, which is working fine.

The last week, some comment spammer out there has decided to do his (face facts, it’s very likely a guy) best to spam the living hell out of blog. I have been hit several hundreds of times a night, and usually about a hundred spam comments get through the filters. Which means about fifteen minutes of cleaning up, each and every day. It’s a bit of a chore, but I am hoping that eventually, the baddies will be blocked not just from here but from all blogs using MT-Blacklist, due to the way that comment spam addresses are being reported to the MT-Blacklist comment spam clearing house.

Anyway, it’d be nice to do other things with that time, but for now I’m resigned to doing my bit to fight comment spam.

  1. You turned the comments off on the post that links to me…so I hope you don’t mind if I add it here instead. The linkup does vary in size depending on two main factors: what people are writing and how much time I have. I’m alos making more of an effort to edit it down to make the links more valuable, as I think if there’s too much it just becomes a blur.

  2. That’s cool. Not complaining about your column, which is still great. I just noticed it was shorter these days. I really to try to post something other than my personal blather these days.
