While we normally refer to our mailboxes when talking about spam, the blogger community is experiencing the next stage of the war on spam: The spambots, that attacks blogs and their commentary systems, and pollutes them with the usual crap.
Spambots have forced me to close down for comments in our Danish blog Afkalkeren. Which is really a pity, because there have been some good debates now and then.
Here in this blog, I ask commenters to use a TypeKey, the proprietary system from SixApart, that comes with MovableType. Some day when I have some time to kill, I’ll probably connect my blog to my community.
