Quiet in the Peanut Gallery

I’m turning off the “comment” feature for a while. For now, please provide comments via the email link on your right. I’m being hit with some automated spam script that’s throwing about 100 spam comments at my site every day. Since I’ve upgraded to Movable Type 3, they no longer appear on the site, which is good (as I have to approve them first), but I still have to go through and manually delete them from the queue every day.

What I’ll do next is upgrade my templates too (I’m still using the Movable Type 2 templates) and then I can require folks to register before they can post comments. I really didn’t want to go there, as I like keeping this as an open forum, but I have to do something to stem the tide of spam.
