ARM 86KGuy can't make up his mind.
AWW 88KHate to tell him that it was discontinued in the early 90s.

Maybe freezing comments for posts over a week old would prevent this? It would also prevent some loony mission poster with a search engine from adding crap ...

I was considering starting a blog, but comments from other bloggers have put me off from using stuff like blogger.com.

I'm busy writing my own blogging system, which will go live later this year. It's pretty neat - even if it needs some better spam filtering tools. ;)
There will be both free/ad-supported and paid accounts available - the paid accounts will probably have more features available. And I'll have a certain number of free "pro" accounts to hand out as well, so just let me know if you're interested. :)

And honeypot them. For actual users, you won't see a comment form, so you can't comment. Spammers often just run through post numbers and hit them all in sequence - so anyone who tries to comment on a post that has comments disallowed is a spammer, and I can blacklist them automatically. Which makes me happy. :D
I enabled a simple honeypot the other day, and so far I've harvested 770 domains and 2200 IP addresses. Blocking IPs isn't worthwhile if it takes human intervention, but we already have 25 IPs that have sent us over 100 spams each, so it's working well. (And the spam block is very quick - a single indexed database lookup, and then increment the counter. Enormously faster than MT Blacklist.)
