Comment Spam

I'm in the midst of my first really serious comment spam attack -- not one or two comments from the same IP address, easily deleted and blocked, but 34 comments with roughly the same text, all from varying IP addresses, all within the last 11 hours. This is not fun.

The URL leads to a page with a fax number in New Jersey as the only contact point. However, the URL resolves to an owner in Russia. What a surprise.

I'm currently trying to install the MT-Blacklist plug-in to stop this, but have run into technical difficulties. I hope I can resolve them soon -- deleting three comments per hour doesn't sound like a good use of my time, but I don't want to disable comments unless I absolutely must.

Frank, what kind of difficulties did you run into installing MT-Blacklist? Can I help? (reply via email)
