…is stupid. I dunno if WordPress 1.2 does anything to fix it. One suggestion that was made is simply reject comments with lowercase names, and real people can learn to capitalize. 🙂 For now I’ve set it so that all comments have to be moderated. Generally these spambots target older entries, so ideally I’d like to set it up when I upgrade so that all entries older then n, where n is a amount of time, are moderated comments, and all new entries are open comments. I think this strikes a better balance then disabling comments on all old entries (sorry Meg!), since sometimes people pop along and have interesting things to say.
