No use there

Has anyone else noticed that blog sp*mmers seem to be becoming careless?

Thankfully, it's been a long time since anything got past MT-Blacklist, but I frequently receive the usual style of comments sp*m via the blog's search form, or via the main (totally unrelated to Movable Type) 'Contact' form. Obviously neither of those routes will get sp*m published, but the sp*mbots don't seem to 'realise' that.

I've also been wondering whether the apparent decline in sp*m (properly-directed, anyway) is related to the fact I'm still using MT2.661 – are sp*mmers ignoring 'older' blogs nowadays?


I'm seeing a lot of spam with Web BB style square brackets instead of proper HTML; is this a MT3 "feature"?
