Comments: Comments Are Back On

There is a global on/off switch in the sense that you can set the default to be "closed" for each post... if you "blow away" the comment templates, then your individual archived posts (what we point to when we link to your blog!) don't render properly.

When I was running MT, I would run this SQL query every night:

update mt_entry set entry_allow_comments = 2 where TO_DAYS(NOW()) - TO_DAYS(entry_created_on) >= 30;

It would close comments on any entry more than 30 days old. Worked fine for a lot of comment spam.
