disabled comments for old posts

Due to increasingly large amounts of comment spam, I’ve disabled comments for posts that aren’t featured on the front page of my blog. If you really want to comment on other posts, feel free to email me and ask for a particular entry to be opened up for commenting. I’ll be more than happy to do that.

I really wish I didn’t have to do this, but given that over 95% of comments on older posts are spam, I feel that I have no choice, since I’m getting sick of logging into MT to delete comment spam.

If any Movable Type developers are reading this, can we please have an interface in the entry power-editing mode for toggling the comment and trackback status of posts? That would have turned what was a 35 minute long task task into a 5 minute long task.

If any comment spammers are reading this, you suck. You take a good thing and spoil it for everybody.
