Housekeeping Notes

Because of the amazing amounts of really vile spam we’ve been getting in trackbacks, I’ve disabled them. Nobody was using them anyway. If there’s really a thing where you used them and I didn’t notice I can put them back, but seriously, it was pretty nasty spam.

For the same reason, after a couple of weeks all posts’ comments will close automatically. I realize this might put a damper on commenting to older posts, but for the most part after a few days most people are done talking anyway.

Anything else about this place’s operation bugging you these days? I’m going to be digging into Typepad pretty hardcore this weekend so drop a comment if something’s wonky.

(I know the search function sucks. Suggest a less-sucky one if you have one.)

  1. I’d like to see more photos of you killing journalism.
    Other than that I can’t think of anything.

  2. Yeah, I’ve been inundated with what appears to be links to Russian porn sites the last coupla months but they’ve all been caught for moderation.
    Does anyone legit still use trackbacks? Just wondering because I used to get a fair amount but it’s now going on a year since I’ve seen any.
    (I don’t know if you want to update your banner to reflect the changing cast o’ characters at this here place. Otherwise, I have no suggestions.)
    (Oh, I thought of one: I’d love to see the [blink] tag used more often!)
