Comment Spam

| | Comments (1)

The amount of comment spam that is not actually spamvertising anything, but is just putting up random links to pages on other people's blogs is growing, and it is quite disturbing. Sooner or later everyone will be blocking everyone else from commenting, and the blogosphere will start dying.

It's also really difficult to delete, because you don't want to add people's sites to your blacklist, and so you have to delete each one individually rather than a big sweep through with mtblacklist.

So I'm going to have a go at installing a graphical text plugin, and see if I can't stem the flow somewhat.
