Apparently there’s rumors that there is now an automated comment spamming software especially for blogs that use Movabletype. After reading the post about the ordeal, be sure to use his blacklist.txt to import the banned perps if you use MT-Blacklist. If you’re using MT and don’t have the MT-Blacklist plugin, by all means, get it. Also be sure you grab the latest blacklist.txt from the official MT-Blacklist page.

Update: Adam Kalsey weigh in on the spam issue, as well.
