I know this site deals with a lot of trackback spam and we have our comments locked down because of the issues with spammers hitting this site and adding thousands of comments. Many of you have complained that you do not comment due to the typekey registration requirement. At this point we have no choice and until MovableType gets a viable solution that is they way it is going to have to be.
Some webhost are starting to shutdown some sites because of the server loads they are causing. Jay Allen who works for Six Apart is busy improving his own code the MT Blacklist so hopefully things will approve on the comment spam arena. [PhotoDude]
