Spam problems

I've been de-spamming the site while Iona has her no-net week.

Not sure that mt-blacklist was working this morning. 112 spam comments from texas-hold-em!!

I got a couple of server errors when trying to delete them, and it looks as if they might have been deleted but not all of the entries / indexes rebuilt properly.

Probably a good idea to just log in and check the latest comments on your blogs and do a full rebuild.

cheers :)

Yup, they will be already deleted. I had a look at the mt-b docs and it says when there is a lot of spam, to just delete the comments using mt-b, then rebuild the blogs afterwards. Rather than all in one go which the server won't deal with.
