Movable Type Upgrade

winky tiki ooh la la

Lemonodor is now running the latest version of Movable Type, with the SpamLookup plugin.

I've enabled SpamLookup's “passphrase” comment validation, which just means that when you post a comment there will be one extra input field into which you will need to type “lisp”. If you don't do that, Lemonodor assumes you are a spammer and won't post your comment. I'm hoping this will be pretty effective, and it should be clear to most humans what is required (though I'm not sure how the Beyonce thread will fare under this new system).

If you have any trouble posting comments, please let me know at jjwiseman@yahoo.com.

That Beyonce thread gave me lots of laughs. I'll be sad to see it stop accumulating posts.

I count 39 posts since you added comment validation, and 32 posts in the preceding 24 day period.

If anything, Lisp has actually fueled the Beyonce thread.

Yes. Not exactly what I expected.
