mt-blacklist installed. i’ve manually deleted over 40 comment spams in the past week; no more.
it’s really sad how primitive the blog spam prevention stuff is. even the concepts adopted from email spam seem to have taken a turn for the unsophisticated.
- mt-blacklist is almost identical to the auto-fetch procmailrc scripts i had what 7-8 years ago?
- moderation (ala majordomo) for comments
- i’ve seen a couple whacks at integrating the ez-gimpy captcha.
it will certainly be interesting to watch where this all ends up in the next 12-18 months (critical mass and all that).
