Blog Spam: IP Banning works?

I’ve been getting some blog spam as of late, and added my first IP to the IP Banning option in <a href=””>MoveableType’s</a> IP Banning config. Is this an effective method of blocking spam from those people?

  1. It’s worked for me.

    Most of the blogs I spam have blocked my IP quite effectively.


    But seriously, the IP’s I’ve needed to block have never again posted anything on my site. Then again, I haven’t had much of a problem with blog spam. Just a few here and there.
