Must say that I’m impressed with the co-operation shown recently between the major search engines to get the ‘nofollow’ initiative off the ground. No mistaking, this is a huge step towards mitigating the problem of comment spam. Suffice to say, I’ve installed the plugin and have joined the fray. When our powers combine…!
In a related move, I’ve finally re-installed MT-Blacklist which should save me the 10 mins I seem to spend each day removing the cruft from my pending comments queue. 38 comments blocked already in the 8 hours since I installed it.
