I. like many other bloggers who use Movable Type, have been pestered with comment spam of late. Quite why people think posting links to their viagra and porn sites in my comments will help their businesses is beyond me, but that’s spammers for you. Well, now there’s a solution, called MT-Blacklist.

However, it requires users to report spammers that get through, so they can be added to the master blacklist. If you’re suffering with this, you’ll want to bookmark the Comment Spam Clearing House. The clearing house is for all comment spam, not just the type that afflicts MT users, so is worth checking out whatever your blog alignment. I’m going to be installing MT-Blacklist, as soon as the last bug that’s stopping me getting it working is ironed out.
