Comment Spam Clearinghouse

Monday, November 10th, 2003 · 1 Comment

This morning I woke up to 65 email notifications of comment spam. Grrr. I have a previous version of MT-Blacklist installed, so along with updating to the latest version (1.61-beta), I’m also going to keep an eye on the Comment Spam Clearinghouse for the latest version of the MT-Blacklist.

Additionally, I’ve changed my blog configuration to require commenters to leave name and email address in order to post. Hint: If you don’t want your email address to show up on my site, just put your own URL or link to your favorite Web site and that will show up instead of your email address.

In other news, my back continues to hurt like hell. Moving company number three (United) should be here soon to provide an estimate.

    This is a pretty friendly thing to do in either case for commenters who may accidentally assume that the email address will be kept private:

    <$MTEntryAuthorLink show_email=”0″$<

    And good luck with MT-Blacklist. Let me know if you run into any problems.
