Gotcha

October 16th, 2004

Ah… I finally found a way to format the .htaccess file which is keeping out the referral spammers. Sure, I’ll have to keep an eye on them and maintain the .htaccess file almost daily, but then the blog already requires a certain level of maintenance, and this isn’t much more.

If you’re interested in knowing the correct formatting for the file and how to execute it, leave a comment with an email addressed (masked by any URL) and I’ll email you a copy of what I have.

Now on to renaming the comments script to keep out the comment spammers–less of a hassle concerning the fact that MT-Blacklist is already keeping them off the site proper, though it’ll be nice to see the stats for the comments file drop below 400 hits a day, knowing that they are 98% spammers.

Update: …aaaand I just executed the major points of advice for comment spam listed on this page, and took a snapshot of the stats. Now time will tell if they work.
