I’ve been disappointed with MovableType recently, but the DOS attack by spammers on my blog this past week was the last straw. I added CAPTCHA, but that didn’t keep them away. (I should note that MT was smart enough to quarantine the spam comments so they never showed up.) My hosting company added a blocking mechanism (via my htaccess file), but by that point I had already decided to follow enjanerd‘s lead and move to WordPress. The blog needs some personalizing, but all the tech stuff is done: your rss feed should update seamlessly (right?) and permalinks still point to the right place.
And maybe a nicer blog will entice me to post more. (A guy can dream, right?)
