Spam, Spam. Sigh.

By - May 17, 2004

I have to turn off comments for a while, I am afraid.I can’t watch the site every hour of the day, and the comment spammers are winning. I’ve even got trackback spam. MT Blacklist is not working for some reason, and I’ve got to figure it out. Sorry about that. But I suggest that if you have comments, perhaps do what Dave suggests, assuming you’ve got a blog – ping me. The trackbacks will show through (and there is less of that kind of spam), and if enough do, then I’ll enable the same kind of approach as boing boing takes.

UPDATE: Got MT working again. It was choking on the amount of incoming spam. Will keep comments open till…next time.

  1. John, Google James Seng’s Bayesian Filter for comment spam. That keeps it under control. http://james.seng.cc/archives/000337.html It’s not perfect. You may want to try it.
