Ok – I realise blogs about blogs must be one of the most boring things on the planet (ranking somewhere near ‘Sarbanes Oxley Documentation’), but here’s another one.
Comments are completely disabled on this server now, thanks to the complete and utter retard who bombarded one of the blogs with over 2000 comments today. If you feel a huge need to comment on something I’ve said here, then mail me, and I’ll do it from this end. Otherwise, the script that used to handle comments will just give you a 403 Forbidden message.
To the guys that use this server to host their blogs: I’ll shortly be looking into upgrading the Blog software we use. Apologies for cutting comments dead like this, but I decided that comment-less blogs were better than no blog at all.
Now, a couple of comments to the spammers…
- The site your were spamming has actually slipped into non-existance, so your fake-links wouldn’t have been crawled by Google, and your sodding gambling sites wouldn’t have got any benefit.
- If the site was still active, what’s the point of bombarding the server with so many comments so as to make it incapable of servicing any other requests – you know, like the ones from the search engines’ bots?
- MovableType has long since plugged the hole you were trying to exploit anyway. MT comments DO NOT include direct links. They DO NOT increase Google PageRank.
