4. Also today, a spammer commented on 2 of my posts from back in August. (I guess some of these spammers think they'll escape notice by commenting on old posts.) Anyway, this spammer posted links to 32 web sites, all of which were sub-domains of a single domain. I entered the single main domain in MT-Blacklist and let it do the rest. The spammer can create all the sub-domains he wants - they are *all* blocked now. Just for good measure, I also reported the spam to the MT-Blacklist clearinghouse.

You can then use conditional in comment templates to display the comment form (if open) or to provide an explanation.
