Comment spam blocker

Jay Allen has been away during the weekend on a deep hacking expedition, working out an Moveable Type comment spam fighter plugin, MT-Blacklist. After 40 hours of coding he has now gone to sleep after releasing a beta version, but sadly the plugin won't run out of the box on my machine. It seems Allen has been a bit careless in assuming that the MoveableType installation is in general using the CGI module. I use mod_perl, which basically breaks the plug in as is. With a little hacking I can make the plugin display work, but not yet the functionality....More work to do tomorrow - but it's about time I get into MT plugin creation anyways.
