In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Have any other bloggers upgraded to Movable Type 3? Is it worth the effort? Does it offer worthwhile new features? Input, opinions, guidance, and observations all appreciated.

I've been using Movable Type 3 for a couple of months now, and I like it. I don't see any downside; the upside is that it's much easier to locate and delete masses of comment spam.

Ditto. I just upgraded a couple of weeks ago. The A-number-1 benefit is comment handling. The admin interface has been spiffied up to be more navigable. Plus, the upgrade was painless--at least for me it was (back up your files, blah, blah, disclaimer...).

Sounds tasty, many thanks. Being able to handle comments better -- that alone seems worth the trouble.
