eWeek on Comment Spam

Heard from a reporter at eWeek yesterday who wanted to interview me about Movable Type comment spam overloads and how they affect web hosts. Unfortunately I got the email too late and wasn’t interviewed for the story, which was published today.

Six Apart has released MT 3.14 to address a bug which was triggering rebuild behavior even in settings where it shouldn’t be necessary, such as when moderated comments are added (99% of comment spam is held as moderated by various mechanisms). We’ll be applying the patch to birdhouse blogs throughout the day.
