comment spam

BTW, comment spam has been quite a problem recently, which accounts for the number of posts that have comments closed. Basically whenever a spam comment is posted I close the comments for the entry, which accounts for the randomness of the comments on/comments off posts. Normally I'd just delete them and be done with it, but Movable Type on my poor Celeron 700 server is dog slow and rebuilding an entry to remove the comment takes about a minute (I'm not exaggerating). Probably part of the problem is the fact that I am inching on to 2,000 posts and that makes MT slower (maybe) but in any case I can't be removing spam comments every five seconds, and that forces me to close the thread. Sorry about that.
