This week I upgraded to the new Movable Type version 3.2 and the new anti-spam features are simply phenominal.
Now all tracebacks are moderated as well as comments, plus there is spam filtering built in for both tracebacks and comments.
The updated software has already automatically stopped all the most recent comment and traceback spam attacks on my weblog in the last few days, so it already gets my vote of confidence.
The one feature I haven't quite been able to use yet in the new version is the entry basename feature allowing entries to have more human readable URLs than 000365.html
The problem I have is working out how to use the old (entry-number based) URLs for previous entries while using the new basename feature for new entries going forward. I particularly want to avoid breaking all the old links - which of course would be very UNCOOL. Anyway, I'll investigate some more before logging a support ticket with Six Apart.
Following my principle of paying for software that is useful and productive (for example, I already had a donors license from before MT went commercial, and for a long time I've had a paid license for WinZip!), I have now ante-ed up and paid the license fee for the upgraded version.
If you are using MT, you should definitely upgrade to 3.2!
