Now that MovableType bloggers can feel slightly more protected from weblogs comment spam thanks to Jay Allen’s MTBlacklist plugin, do not feel like this will drive the pesky spam-roaches away.
Remember that their whole goal is to insert their viagra, porn, rip-off sales, etc web site addresses into your pages as it improves their Google Ranking. So know, a fellow posing as “Dave” claims to write a comment:
Wow, that feels good to get such a nice ego stroke, but when you translate the comment, it reads:

Smash! Another flattened spam roach!
