Anyone with a MovableType blog that is even remotely on the map has no doubt been hammered lately with comment spam, comments made on entries by a script or program in an attempt to increase search engine page rankings. Prior to today, one had to manually delete each of these comments. No more! Jay Allen has developed a plugin for MovableType that removes these spam comments based on a blacklist (of both hostnames and regular expressions) and intercepts new spam comments before they are made. There's even a one-click link included in the comment notification email that makes it easy to de-spam your blog."
The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when
exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
