simple (not infallible) spam solution

KF writes of discovering a possible comment spammer technique: using Google to search for phrases like “remember info,” “post a comment,” “comment,” etc. You know, the typical, default stuff that appears in the comments section of an MT-based blog.

So if you change these phrases to something non-standard, it seems you would be less likely to be hit by the automated scripts that search for them and then post comment spam.

Just a thought.
