Comment Spam... Fried

I arrived home yesterday to over two hundred comments to my posts. I thought this odd, on a busy commenting day I get around fifty responses, and most days about fifteen. Then I saw that most of these were promoting an online pharmacy, and I decided to take action.

I've put off upgrading Movable Type (I've been running version 1.4 for over two years), under the "if it ain't broke..." rule, but I bit the bullet and upgraded to the latest version so I could install MT-Blacklist. If you're having comment spam problems, I can't recommend this plugin enough. Simple to install and simple to use, I had my weblog spam-free in thirty minutes (from upgrade of MT to eating a cheese sandwich to installing and running MT-Blacklist).
