Spammers Take Down Live Music Blog

From my hosting company…

Top Process%CPU 85.1 /usr/bin/perl -w mt-comments.cgi
Top Process%CPU 85.0 /usr/bin/perl -w mt-comments.cgi
Top Process%CPU 84.9 /usr/bin/perl -w mt-comments.cgi

Honestly, I’m a complete beginner when it comes to blocking spams before they load to the server…can anyone shoot some assistance my way if you have it? What Movable Type plugins do I need? What do they do? Do I need to switch to WordPress? Is that any better?

Any thoughts would be sweet, and because you can’t comment here right now, shoot me an email if you have any ideas.
