Unbound Spiral: Upgrading MT - Comment Spam

January 12, 2005 11:27 PM

I am completely sick of comment spam. I recently upgraded to MT 3.14. However, had had little time to develop new templates to use the newer features. Plus after 2.5 years of generally adding and subtracting bits it is time to start over. So what you see today is a stock standard MT set of templates. The comment spam is still pouring in.

Tonight I experienced something I thought was reasonable. The Social Software Weblog now asks for a confirmation via e-mail (if you are new). Click on the link and your post is updated. That's new since the last time I left a comment there. I'll have to chase directions for installing it. Anyone else implemented this?

So watch for new templates soon.

Hi Stuart

I upgraded to MT3.14 a couple of weeks ago and find it way better at dealing with comment spam. MT Blacklist is better integrated and it can force-moderate comments on old posts. I find it keeps almost all the rubbish off the site now. Hope you have a better experience with the new version too.
