More on Comment Spam

I’ve been reading through the archives of Moveable Type, the people responsible for this blogging software. Unfortunately, I’m not alone when it comes to comment spam.

The 800+ entries this morning was sobering. I don’t want to go through it again. So, here’s what I’ve done. I just installed a little script which cuts off comments from blog entries after 10 days.

I can deal with policing comments on recent posts. And, recent entries are where the real comments are found. The spam gravitates to older entries.

I will report back on my success or lack thereof.
