Comment spamitis notice

Due to a recent epidemy of comment spam on this weblog, to the point that I now waste a significant time every day cleaning this shit, I've forced comment moderation. I can't get MTBlackList 2.0 to work since it requires a Perl library that is not installed on this shared server (Storable.pm). Obviously this will slow down conversations (at least when I'm away), but it will indeed nullify the effects of those scumbags droppings. I need to change my templates to allow for TypeKey-authentified comments to appear directly.

Update (to be cont'd): ah ah, not funny, the old SimpleComments I was running was outputting the unapproved comments (bad, kind of defeats the goal isn't it?) but the latest version now requires Storable.pm! Private joke for Damelon: OK, I know I need to get a better host ;-). So I guess it's time to get back to the good old MTComment tags...
