Woo-hoo! Mt-Blacklist kills spam dead!

I’d posted before about the occasional spam comments I was receiving here on elf-reflection, and then I read about those who were having much more serious problems with spam comments on their blogs and journals; Mike, for example, had about 50 of them one day last week, while poor Cornelia had over 100 just the other day.

Last night I installed the mt-blacklist plug-in for MovableType, and I just saw that it already had blocked a spam posting this morning. I’m very happy.

If you’re using MovableType for your blogging software, I definitely suggest you install mt-blacklist–specifically recommended by Anil Dash over at–for preventing spam comments and trackback pings.
