Dear spammers: I had been perfectly satisfied with allowing you to plop your online gambling and pharmeceutical links in my blog from time to time. Every couple of weeks, I’d take a look at the comments interface in Moveable Type and delete anything that didn’t look like a legit comment. Then you had to go and ruin that by posting 300 spams Christmas Eve.

Now I’ve installed MT Blacklist. It’s got about 2500 spam filters defined, and when I see one sneak through, it reports it to a central server and everyone else who uses MTB gets to know that you’re blog spamming.

I hope you got a lot of click-throughs for those comments, because you won’t be getting many more.
