Tackling spam

I guess I have left this blog unkempt for too long a time. Spam first crept in, and then swiftly swamped the posts. I have not updated my blog engine in some time and that clearly spells doom these days. The most shocking thing for me was watching spam in ACTION. As I was clearing out the spam comments, new comments started popping in magically. I had to disable the comments, and had to ban some of the spamming IPs to stop the avalanche. I probably have to get to updating Textpattern sooner rather than later, but this should stop the flooding temporarily.
