Comments now have anti-spam

I regret to get in anybody's way, but the volume of comment spam I have been getting has been driving me nuts, and Movable Type makes it a royal pain to delete. There is no point in them spamming, I turned off putting links on URLs they include in the spams, but they do it anyway.

Anyway, to stop them, I added a box to the comment form where you have to enter a word I describe. No, I don't put the word in an image -- that popular technique is shutting the blind off from a growing part of the web -- I just describe it in English. Just a warning for those wanting to comment. And hope no spammers decide to automate it (if they do I change the question.)

Have you tried MT Blacklist? I installed it last week on my blog after getting inundated with bogus comments, and it has done the trick. It even let me go back and clear out old comments I had missed.

Im having the same problem with my MT weblog, but I can't seem to make time to edit code!

Great article on spam. I was seeking Brad T. & his viewers advice on Domain Name Reg. Who is best in the San Francisco Bay Region for the following recquirements please?

Great photography & website Brad Templeton ! I found it through the burningman.com site. I am in the SF Bay also. I have been trying to set up my own website. I'm seeking good Bay Region located, cheap or free domain name registrar sources. One where I can file like a dozen or more variations of names cheap or prefer free. .com .net .us .biz .info, etc, etc. per name. So I remain the one and only. I will also have some art nude photo & art gallery sections, as well as controversial news footage such as blood & gore, and controversial Pro left, anti right politics. Not porn. But I need a domain reg local who doesn't sensor or blacklist. Full freedom of speech, expression, belief & press. Must be SF Bay because if any name or contact based court disputes should occur, the court of the domain reg. neighborhood is held there. Local, you can spend evening/weekends tending life at home. Instead of flying to far corners of the nation or world & camping for months.

P.S. the movie "Writers Day" that I just co-starred in has just been entered at Sundance Film Festival, Utah. Keep an eye out.
