Unce, tice, fee times a comment
A new MT hack passed along by goddess Kristine.....prevent commenters from multi-submitting the same exact comment by hitting your post-button repeatedly while waiting for the comment to publish.

This hack modifies MovableType to simply ignore the same comment being entered multiple times for an entry. Two comments are considered the same if the comment text and the name, email address and url of the comment author are exactly the same. [link]

I've just implemented and tested it, and it works. When trying to submit the same comment more than once, it merely refreshes to the comment page -- showing the first, original comment as already-published. Wonderful tweak for me after this week's license plate fiasco. Thanks again, Kristine! (Read more at the Movable Type forums.)

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Sweet. I've been having that happen on my blog way too much lately. Thanks for the info. :)

Thank you, Robyn! Like Melissa, this has happened too many times on my site lately.

Sweeeeeet! Now with that and the 'show more of this comment' script I requested (Jenn rocks ;-) I should be all set!

Can someone write a plugin that recognizes trolls and comment spammers and makes their heads explode? That would be cool.

Remember that Meki idiot that was spamming your comments last week? They seem to have found my blog. Ugh.

Ban their IP. (Though I guess this meki creature spoofs.)

I'm implementing scripts at my site today. Thanks for the link! :-)

And for some odd reason it doesn't want to work. I'll try later :-) Thanks again!

Cool! Of course for that to be helpfull to me it would require that I have people who actually comment...
