Endless comment spam


Wow, the comment spam on this blog has been enormous the last couple weeks.

This has happened a couple times before–typically after a couple of very popular posts get linked to across the Internet.

MovableType (which I use for this blog) has gotten better at providing support for deleting comment spam, but under heavy spamming it’s still a pain. Blog tools need to learn a thing or two from spam filters in email systems. Even one minute a day selecting and deleting spam is too much.
