More Anti-Spam Measures

As an experiment, I will be closing down comments on all posts that haven't had any comments for a few weeks. The idea is to shrink the target for comment spammers — I had hundreds of comment spams over the weekend despite MT-Blacklist and I'm getting more than a little fed up swatting it all.

    I had the same problem this weekend. Any chance you could post the changes you make to MT in order to disallow comments for older posts?

    I installed a very effective plugin called mt-close2.
