Keyword spam control in Movabletype

Like many bloggers I use Movabletype, I also suffer spam comments. MT controls the vast majority but increasingly I have to pop in an manually control it. The way to add keywords to be junked wasn't clear to me so as a public service here is how I do it.

Main menu of your MT control panel - find the "plugins" section - click on it.

Find the "settings" choice of the Keyword Filter section - go to it.

Copy in a unique word that the spammer uses onto a new line of keywords to junk - I always add "4" after it as this means it is a bad bad word (you can rate badness from the default of 1 to 10)

Save you changes and you will never see that word again in your comments!

Those phone cards don't have near the popularity over here as they do there.
