The comment spammers have been having a field day with Maddy’s blog and her memorial. Dammit, I know spammers are the lowest form of life, but spamming the dead is beyond the pale.
Anyway, I just finished installing MT-Blacklist, a plugin that should stop a lot of the more egregious comment spam. I installed it and ran the “scan the list 25 comments” mode, and it found two comment spams. Then I tried posting a spam with a url containing a couple of spammish words in it, and it refused to allow it. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
