George posted about the new version of MT-Blacklist. I have experienced people posting spam to my blog. It is the usual routine where the message says “great site, check out this link for another great site.” I find it distasteful and annoying so I manually delete these comments.
I checked out the automated blacklist tool recently and was a bit concerned about it. If you check out the compatibilty list here you find that it is not compatible with “mod_perl.” I am assuming they are referring to the pearl module used with Apache. (Though I could be wrong.) If this is the case, then I am out of luck since I am running the Perl module. I am thinking about installing it anyway to test it, but am just a bit nervous because I do not want to spend a bunch of time trying to reverse this if it screws something up with either MT or Apache.
Does anyone have any idea about this?
