MT 3.14

I’ve installed MT 3.14 to address the potential issue of comment spam and server load. It’s never been a problem for me, most likely thanks to MTCloseComments, which expires comment posting to keep the spammers — as well as Kaanibs and Rubenians — out of my archives. I hope other MT users on this shared server have the good sense to take similar measures.

    From what I’ve heard, the very best (and universally working) way to quell comment spam is to rename your comment-posting script. Or, as I did, rename the fields in the script (and corresponding comment form). I haven’t gotten a single spam since I did that. And I’d been getting hundreds per day.
