The Spam Archive

Since I’ve been getting quite fanatical about it lately, there’s now a “Spam” category – you can read post excerpts as HTML or subscribe to the RSS feed. All my recent entries about comment spam will be in there but the aim of the category is to cover spam in general and not just spam on blogs. That said, most of the recent stuff is about comment spam so you may find it useful.
While I’m on the subject, Feedster have launched an IP-blacklisting service for comment spammers – you can provide them with the IP and URL used and it will be added to an OPML file. Now all we need is a plugin for MT that adds these IPs automatically, although I fear that this will be futile because by the time an IP has been reported the spammer will have probably spammed a great many blogs. And there’s the potential for abuse.
