White Flag

I raised the white flag today. I thought I had turned comments off in moveable type (v 2.6x) and deleted all the old spam. But today — just 2.5 days after cleaning up the mess — there were another 556 spam turdlettes on the site.

I don’t have time for this.

I haven’t gotten the entire site back up but I did upgrade to MT 3. I’ll figure out the TypeKey thing and turn comments on again. Soon. But not real soon.

I’m searching for an experience that has the same feel as when spammers stain your site. It’s somewhere between your house being egged and your front yard being trenched. Maybe both.
