I've been getting crushed by comment spam the past week or so. Several hundred a day. Really, really aggravating, even though cleaning it up usually requires just a few keystrokes and mouse clicks. It just feels like you've been digitally violated.
Guess it's time to upgrade to the latest version of Movable Type. BTW, I know two rights don't make a wrong, but if someone were to hang a few comment spammers by their thumbs, well, I wouldn't rush to help them down.
