Movable Type is kicking…

Movable Type is kicking my butt. I'm trying to finally deal with the horrible mess of comment spam on the DesiLit blog. As a temporary measure, I turned off unregistered commenting, but now I can't seem to get registered TypeKey commenting to work. (I sent in a support request on that.) And Kevin tried to install MT Blacklist for me a while back, but failed. I have no idea how to fix these things. And it's going to take me forever to go through and clean out the backlog of comments -- all but the first 100 or so of many thousands are spam. If I could just clear them all and start over I would, but there doesn't seem to be an option for that. Argh argh argh.

  1. I may be able to help you upgrade to 3.2 this weekend if you want. My understanding is that the spam-prevention system in 3.2 is a lot better than in earlier versions. Still far from perfect, but would probably help.
