So my weblog is getting hit by a slow-moving, multi-ip address using comment robot. Ugh. I suppose I could try to dream up a fancy anti-spam tactic and spend dozens of hours coding it. But it only takes about 5 minutes to delete 30 comments, so the spam is annoying but little more. The robot is still posting every ten minutes or so, btw. I went through Movable Type’s menus, looking for a “disable all comments” setting, but there doesn’t appear to be one. I may have to use brute force, and temporarily delete my mt-comments.cgi file.

  1. Oh yeah, and you should upgrade to the latest version of MT, it has some minor anti-spam pieces in it, so one IP address cannot post more than X comments in a period of time.
