Under Construction
Gregg is upgrading my site to Movable Type 3.11, and the new software is causing a delay in comments actually going up on the site. This will probably continue for a few days. No, this isn't a sign that I've lost my fervor for freedom of speech. The software especially designed to deal with the huge volume of spam my site and all MT sites get. This comments reg issue that's causing the delay in comments actually going up after you click "post" (and other issues) will be corrected very soon. If you've already upgraded a site to MT 3.11, your observations would be appreciated.

The Blacklist 2.0 plugin for MT 3.11 is not installing properly. With MT you install and uninstall and at some point it works. I'm in the middle of that, so I hope Amy's commenters will excuse the temporary inconvenience as I slog through. Maybe I can get Rumsfeld to help.

MT is not updating the Comment Counter but the comments appear to be going through.

I put an error message on the Comment Lsting template until I can fix things. The counter may be off but the comments go through.

I've consulted the oracle--so I wait.

I use the free commenting feature at haloscan, and it generally works really well, and I don't think they have so many problems with Spam.
