Comment malfunction

I am not yet certain whether yesterday's comment malfunction was a server glitch or an MT hiccup but comments once again appear to be working. Sorry about that. Funny how one misses this stuff when it is not available.

Flea-readers may have noticed a massive increase in comment spam these last two weeks. I am Blacklisting left and right but have reached the point of taking some new measures. Suggestions are welcome.

Nicholas,

I recommend the SCode security code approach. You can see it in action on my site; I've also installed it on other people's blogs.

Should work well until someone makes a spambot smart enough to decode images.

Looks like a good system. Or -- if you don't care for it -- there's always Typekey registration...
