I woke up to find my blog spammed badly. 62 pervy comment spams from the same IP address. What a mess.... Do I have to delete the dirty stuff one by one? That's nothing sweet to start a day. Thanks for giving me extra work to do in the morning, you f---ing bastard.
As I wrote here the other day, I was using a neat hack called Avoid Comment Spam, which had been working pretty well. Even with that, naturally though, I received a few spamming comments like every two days. That was OK with me, as long as the number was not so outrageous. I simply deleted the garbage manually, and added the URLs to the list.
No big deal. No. Really. Until this morning. At least. Wow.
Deleting 62 nasty comments at a time makes you go ballistic, you know, even for a person of mild manner and gentle humor like me. Oh, you didn't laugh, did you? ;) Yeah, I knew there's a better solution called MT-Blacklist. With this plugin, you can manage comment spams more easily, and don't have to take the time to delete spams manually. But since the plugin couldn't be used without the Storable.pm thing installed on the server, which happened to be just my case, all I could do was look enviously at the program.
To my joy, I had recently found that the newest version didn't necessarily require the module. I, however, didn't install it since it's still a beta version AND, as I said, thanks to the hack I'd used, I hadn't felt comment spam so nasty - until this morning. Deleting the comments one by one with still sleepy eyes, I decided to bring in the plugin. And it's been installed all right now. Boy, it's a really great program!
Oh, come to think of it, the morning's fuss has brought about today's entry. Sounds lucky, doesn't it? :) So, thank you, Underage and Preteen, you f....
