Zope really isn't intended for extremely write-heavy applications. With the comment spammers dumping hundreds to thousands of spams per hour on the blog now, the blog is now officially a write-heavy application.
If I've done this right, then the spams should now be moderated, so they shouldn't have any benefit for the spammers. Still, it's half a day of work wasted to deal with the slimy little bleepards instead of working on PyOpenGL.
CoreBlog does, it turns out, have a hook to deal with pre-comment-insertion operations... it's just a pretty anaemic little thing that just lets you set moderation. I'd prefer it just let me drop the comment entirely, since I can see that it's a spam already. Anyway, at some point I guess I need to move the blog... it always seems like such a huge hassel, though.
Anyway, we'll see how bad the spamming is tomorrow, may need to take it offline while I'm at work.
