A Metaphorical Cup of Hemlock

As most of my readers know, I’m using SpamLookup as my primary means of fighting blog spam these days. As I’ve written before, I luuuuurrrve it.

It’s a darn good thing Brad thought to add regular expression matching as a minor feature, though. There’s a lot of crap that would otherwise get through as the spammers get more sophisticated. That regex matching has one key feature that Jay Allen’s MT-Blacklist sorely lacked: it checks the e-mail address, too.

See, I have this guy who thinks he’s Socrates.

Socrates@euthyphroed.com, in fact.

He has lots of drugs to sell.

He loves to post about it here.

“Euthyphroed” is now in the SpamLookup “block” wordlist. He’s tried over 300 times since I added it, but he hasn’t succeeded yet.

Go ponder that for a while, Socrates.
