Man, I hope Jay is able to port MT-Blacklist over to MT3 before too much longer as the spammers are driving me nuts. The odd thing is they’re not even hitting SEB all that much as of late, but they’re pounding the hell out of Anne’s blog. Today alone I think I’ve deleted at least a dozen spam comments from her blog whereas I’ve deleted just one from SEB in the same time period. Because of a bug in how TypeKey works when your MT installation and your blog are on different domains or sub-domains I can’t set things so only TypeKey registered people can comment because it won’t reconize that you’ve signed in properly. They’re working hard on this bug and hope to have it resolved soon, though I’d still be reluctant to limit comments only to TypeKey accounts as it is. At least removing comment spam is a lot easier in this version of MT3. Still, I miss the sense of satisfaction that comes with adding a spammer to my blacklist and knowing that URL won’t be showing up in my comments again.
