Where's my can of Raid?

Apparently there's some new comment spam attack under way, screwing things up in the blogosphere, especially for those of us who use Movable Type as our software. Please be patient while we tweak the system yet again to deal with these creeps. Comment capability may be interrupted while we waste more time on this.

If Ron Wyden really wants to save the internet, he needs to criminalize spam, and get serious about enforcement. Otherwise, only big money will be able to have a site where folks can express themselves.

Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if big money were somehow behind the current attacks on the blogosphere. We're terribly inconvenient for them.

What, have you caught wise to Ronnie?

All the spam combat weapons are in place. Please let me know if anything isn't working right.
