Well, I thought I had a great way of keeping spammers at bay, with the .htaccess file. As it turns out, I also seem to be keeping out most of the legitimate visitors as well; reports have come back from helpful visitors that sometimes even access to the comments themselves is restricted. Damn. Well, the .htaccess is gone, so now there should be a lot more visitors leaving comments again… as well as a flood of spammers.

Time to start looking into MT 3.0 and comment registration again.

Update: …aaaand within just a few hours, spam starts rolling in. Ah, well. Meanwhile, the referral spamming cockroaches are crawling into the site at full force; more than 600 such spams in five days, more than any other time before.
