That annoying comment spam

I've disabled the ability for comments to be posted without being registered and logged in via TypeKey for the moment. I've not managed to figure out the problem I'm having with MT-BL and I can't find anyone else that is having the same issue. The amount of comment spam that is being posted and sitting in the moderation queue is quite high and it's just a waste of time having to keep removing it. I'm getting around 100-200 per day at the moment, all of which would normally be blocked by MT-BL.

Once the blacklist is back up and running I will switch the ability to post without being registered back on, although comments from users not authenticated via TypeKey will still be moderated. Also, the issue where the comments boxes were not always visible without selecting the area with a mouse has also been fixed.
