This annoying MT comments spam problem is killing me! So until I can figure out how to install the MT Blacklist program, I’ve closed off my comments. I am available on email (if you look hard enough on the right hand side, you should find it somewhere)…

Update: Have installed Jay Allen’s Blacklist and deleted over 300 spam messages. Am hoping it’s going to keep these evil people away…

  1. You might want to take a look at:

    They have the simplest and the most effective (albeit manual) way of managing your comments. Open for selective topic-wise comment that you’d really like to hear from people reading; and close of adding comments on all old topics. It’s lengthy but, will keep you focussed only on the open (latest/current) one =)


  2. Oh, I forgot: do upgrade your MT version. They found some flaws in older MT (specifically XML-RPC – that allows comment spamming). Hope this reduces the number – if not all.

  3. Update your MT install. From 2.63 to current, its 2.66. They are brining out an alpha version 3, participate in teh testing πŸ˜›

  4. Hey – there is one neat way to kill spam. Download this little tool called Magic Mail Monitor ( and preview all your email. This little tool is POP3 email checker (does not work for services like Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.) that downloads the subject of all your messages. You can quickly delete all the unwanted messages from the server before going through the rigmorale of deleting them locally.

    Yes – there are many more ways to kill SPAM. But this is one good way to the list.
