Hour 22. Movable Type Plug-Ins > A More Complex Plug-In: MT-Blacklist

A More Complex Plug-In: MT-Blacklist

Back in Hours 14, (“Getting Started with Comments”) through 17, (“Doing More with TrackBack”), we kept running across the topic of comment and TrackBack spam, comments or pings that link back to some other site to increase its popularity and aren't in response to anything on your site. This kind of spam can go from being a nuisance to being a serious problem for your Web site very quickly.

Fortunately, the Movable Type community isn't one to take things like that lying down, and a fair bit of development is being done around features and tools to help curb the problem. Jay Allen's MT-Blacklist plug-in is one such tool, and is an excellent example of a more complex and interesting plug-in for you to work with in Movable Type.
