Automated Comment Deletion from MT-Blacklist Emails

I, like many Movable Type users, am getting loads of comment spam notification emails from the MT-Blacklist plug-in. Processing the comment spam usually goes something like this:

  1. Select the mail in Apple Mail.
  2. Click the “De-spam using MT-Blacklist” link.
  3. Click the “Go forth now and do my bidding!” button in Safari.

It would be great if I could select an email (or better a batch), and invoke an AppleScript that would send the appropriate de-spamming URL to the Movable Type.

A less attractive alternative would be better MT-Blacklist emails—containing a direct despam URL that doesn’t require confirmation.

  1. Agree wholeheartedly. Gone too is the “despam blog” to just despam all your current entries with your blacklist.

Agree? Disagree? What do you think?
