Greetings from the War on Lunchmeat. Jay Allen’s MT-Blacklist, a powerful and flexible tool for fighting comment spam in Movable Type weblogs, has achieved a stable and useful 1.5.

We had a bunch of problems with the initial release, and Allen was a complete mensch about it, poking around at the innards of our site and reconfiguring until everything worked. So we’ve been using some of the additional functionalities of 1.5 for several days now. If you maintain a weblog with Movable Type, go get this. And if this open-source freeware it works for you as well as it’s working for us, consider hitting his tipjar.

Anyway, how can you dislike a program that, once you have the offending spam lined up in your sights, presents you with a button that reads “Go now and do my bidding”? I ask you. [07:51 PM]
