The comment spammers still haven’t let up trying to post ads in the comments of the entries on the site. Configuring the site to approve comments just means that I have to sift through tons of comment spam and delete them before they hit the site. I really don’t have time for that! So now I’ve setup comment registration in which users register through Movable Type’s free service called TypeKey to post comments on the site. I think that this will be a much better solution to cut down on comment spam–let’s see how this works.

  3. Okay, this appears to be working. I hope that the volume of legitimate comments on the site doesn’t drop because of this. I know that many people are hesitant to register for anything nowadays, but we’ll see. It will be an interesting social behavior experiment I guess. Stay tuned.
