In a reaction to the ever increasing menace of Blog spam, the Trotts at Six Apart have release MovableType 2.66 as a stopgap before the release of comment registration in Movable Type 3.0, in an effort to provide some protection against blogspam flooding.
Included in the update is a new throttling measure where comments from the same IP address can only be posted every N seconds, as well as a measure to automatically ban an IP address based on an abnormal number of comments from the same address in a short period of time.
