Squashing Link Spammers in Movable Type
Rogers Cadenhead has posted a nice little plug-in script for Moveable Type that will remove excessive links in comments. For example, you can specify that if there are more than 5 links in the comment, all of them get stripped out.
I don’t get a lot of comments here, and when I do, they generally don’t have links in them. Except for the spammers. Personally, I want a script that just won’t post the comment at all if it has links in it.
Hm, now that I’ve moved Chaos Magnet to a new server, maybe I should try target="_blank">MTBlacklist again. (Last time I was thwarted because the server I was on had a version of Perl that was too old, and I refused to pay $50/hour for them to upgrade it, what that was something I shouldn’t even have had to ask for.)
