Blacklisting spammers

Having run MT Blacklist for slightly more than 2 months now, I have only positive things to say about Jay Allen's effort. (BTW it blocked over 40 (!) spam-attempts during the recent Christmas and New Year's vacations).

I'm not going to make it a habit to post screenshots from my logs, but the below (pay attention to the timestamp, click to zoom) made me laugh - right in the face of the spammer(s): The indiasilk.biz spammer had just posted a meaningless comment to my blog a minute before - I added his domain to my blacklist immediately and MT Blacklist kicked in doing what it does best: stopping advertisers stealing ad space in my blogs.



If you're a Movable Type user and you want to stop all the false comments in your weblog / on your website, get MT Blacklist and start blocking the domains listed here and here...

I have been using it since it came out. I guess that about two months ago. I also have nothing but good things to say about it. The spammers are losing this battle in a big way because of Jay.

What a nice message to wake up to! :-)

Glad to be of service.

Yet another reason to switch over to MT. Good stuff!

(if you have one)

What do you want to say?
(please don't bother posting "spam" (pornography, viagra-sales etc - I will delete such comments anyway))

Remember info?
