Stolen buttons mother lode

So, I went off in search of a Movable Type gif because I'm certain that one way to stop one source of comment spam is to eliminate the words "Powered by Movable Type" from my page, and yes I know it's on just about all the pages here, but I was particularly concerned about the main page even when I should be concerned about all the pages, probably, because the "Powered by Movable Type" phrase seems to be an increasingly popular search term for comment spammers, and even though there's an mt.gif that comes with the MT package, I wanted to see what others might be using, and for a long time I got lost in the dark world of "steal these buttons" in my search, and I happened upon what may very well be the definitive source for all things "steal these buttons," including instructions on how to make your own "steel these buttons" buttons, at a web site called Steal These Buttons, no less.

Great site, Marie. Thanks for pointing us to this! I haven't had any problems with comment spam yet, but I figure it is only a matter of time...
