Posting comments at this site has only been possible for a day, so I have no problems with comment spam yet. After reading about many other blogs being attacked (Brainstorms and raves, Clagnut, Adam Kalsey and Simon Willison to name a few) I thought I’d be a bit proactive and do what I can to stop comment spam before it finds me.

What I did was install Jay Allen’s MT-Blacklist plugin, which is very easy to install and seems to work well as discussed at If all goes well I’ll never see any comment spam, except in the log.
