MT Blacklist

For some reason, I've always been under the assumption that your MT had to be a higher version that what I'm running (v. 2.62) to install MT-Blacklist . I finally went and took a look today only to find out that my version is compatible and I could have been running it since it came out! Needless to say, I installed it right away (took all of three minutes) and am now protected from MT spammers (I really hate those bastards. The trojan that I have on my machine right now is from accidetally clicking on one of their links. Fuckers.).

My black list is under The Fishkeeper sidebar if you want to add any of the people I've blocked. Here's hoping I get a lot less comment spam!

If you upgrade to MT3, deactivate MT-Blacklist as they're not compatible. Personally, I found MT-Blacklist's handling of spam even better than requiring TypeKey registration or anything like that!

So why aren't you running the latest MT 2.x version? I don't think the upgrade to 2.661 is any harder than a plug-in install (it just always makes more more nervous). Just curious.

If not the scode plug-in has always solved all my spam problems (knock on wood). http://mt-plugins.org/archives/entry/scode.php
It uses those captcha prove you 're a human tests. http://www.captcha.net/
Okay, I digress...

Good luck on Project Blog!
