Well I had my first experience with comment spam yesterday so I did what any good Movable Type user would do, I installed MT Blacklist. I haven’t had any new comments yet, so I don’t know how well it works yet. If you want to install it, I’d wait until Monday when the new version comes out.
I also donated to Movable Type this week. I probably wouldn’t have except the MT site says, “Each donation for Movable Type will be credited to the purchase of Movable Type Pro when that product is released.” And I get a little extra publicity for the site since it will now show up on the MT site as “Recently Updated” when I post.
