Junk Filtering coming to MT 3.2

I'm glad to hear smarter junk filtering for both comments and TrackBacks is coming to Movable Type 3.2. I've pretty much given up on responding to comments or TrackBacks anymore... I get a deluge of junk notifications every day, and it's really hard to pick out the relevant stuff from the rape, incest, conflict diamonds, and online gambling. Requiring TypeKey has seriously decreased the number of junk comments, but at the same time it's decreased the number of overall comments as well. Kind of sucks the fun out having a weblog to (a) no longer have anyone commenting or starting a discussion and (b) having to spend every waking hour dealing with spam or just letting it grow.
