MT-Blacklist Rules(!) for blog spam (and so does Jay Allen)

Written By: Gary on February 3, 2005 No Comment

So I finally installed MT-Blacklist to help cut down on my comment (and trackback) spam. “Why?” you ask… Because after getting mildly annoyed here and there with the occasional comment spam (and the very rare trackback spam) I got hit with 470 trackback spams in one night! And another 30-40 the next day before I even had a chance to start deleting the others!

Mt blacklist Let me tell you MT-Blacklist installed like a charm and in less time than it would have taken me to delete 100 spams it took care of all 470. That’s the fastest I’ve ever hit a PayPal donation button!!!

And to give you a point of reference, I’ve probably never gotten more than forty (maybe only thirty) blog spams total in the last fourteen months.

My tips for installing it: read the instructions first, then do it step by step. If you hit the place where the instructions split (from congratulations to this is the long path) I don’t know how it will go for you but it was cake for me….

I only wish it was automated to get more current definitions, it would really help…
