Blog Spam

For those of us running Movable Type and who are getting hit by blog spam here’s a great article with suggestions on what you can do about it – Friday Feast #61: Unwanted Comments – Brainstorms and Raves-. I’ve only had a couple, that I’ve deleted straight away, but it’s a problem that will probably grow over time.

I guess as most people can easily manage their comments on a daily, or even more regular, basis the benefit to spammers of having their graffiti on-line for only a brief time will eventually be outweighed by the cost of trying to keep it there for longer. I know, foolish me, but I live in hope.
