comment s p a m licker

I’ve just installed Chad Everett’s MT-approval plugin v0.1.1 to at least try to stem the flow of messages from vendors of chopped meat products. I went out this morning c-spam free and when I came back at 14.15 I had 55 comment alerts in my mailbox all with exactly the same message (crap speelinges & grammar bad with html too much wrong also).

The upshot for you is that if you leave a comment, you will need to preview it first before posting. If you just post, it displays a message, which doesn’t spell this out, but it doesn’t let you post either.

Not tremendously tidy, but hopefully effective for now. Mail me (lloyd at etc…) if it’s giving you the runaround (unless you’re a tinned pork pusher, natch).

Now with added burned bits

This morning, I replaced the Atom XML feed with a Feedburner one. It’s called Perfect Path – duh!

The main reason is for me to get stats about what’s happening to the feed without wading through lines and lines of server log (which I admit, I enjoy on occasion) so I’d ask anyone subscribing through an aggregator to switch feeds.

Of course, me being me, I may not have done everything exactly as I should have (Read Instructions, Forget Instructions, Jab, Wonder Why It Doesn’t Work) so your feedback is, as ever, welcome.
