The engine room

Pretty much everyone with a blog faces the curse of comment spam. Brad Choate has just released SpamLookup, an uber-anti-spam plugin which plays nice with MT-Blacklist and which seems to just about kill comment and trackback spam.

I’m very impressed with it, as is Byrne over at majordojo, and Jay Allen (the author of MT-Blacklist).

The plugin-friendly architecture of most blogging systems is a huge boon to any blogger wanting more than the base feature set. Even on a blog as simple as this one, I use several plugins and am always looking for more to boost what I can do.
