New Comment Spam Filter

One problem I've been having with moderated comments...Spammers will spam, regardless of whether the comments actually make it on the site or not. So I've been having to clean out my comments and manually approve, which has been a pain in the neck. I decided to try out MT-Keystrokes, which uses Javascript to ensure that all comments approved are entered using keystrokes on the keyboard, the idea being that comment spammers will typically go right to the script and auto-submit without using any keystrokes.

We'll see how it works over the weekend. If I come back to more comment spam on Monday, I'll have to try something else.
