Plug-In Help?

Comment spam is still destroying us. Does anyone have experience with MT Plug-Ins and have a spare moment to help us out? We're thinking of Blacklist and SCode, but we're open to suggestions! The spam is very discouraging. I've spent nearly all my "free" time (aka "blog" time) working on this problem lately and I haven't made much progress.

I installed MT-Blacklist on my blog ( and it helped, but I still have to go in and remove the spam, although it rarely shows up on the blog.

Danny: When you say "it rarely shows up on the blog" what do you mean? Right now we are approving each comment, which means that nothing shows up on the blog without going in and approving the legitimate comments while deleting the spam. There are hundreds per day and we're getting e-mails for each spam comment. I've tried to turn off comment notification, but that hasn't worked. It's quite frustrating and demotivating.

Have you thought about SCode? It's a plugin that requires readers to type in a code.

The problem is that we don't have computer skills. It seemed like installing blacklist or scode would be simple, but it is not to us. Any suggestions?
