How nice to see my favorite under-appreciated blogger turn up at one of my favorite appreciated sites.
Now if you could only get them to spill the beans on how they implemented that anti-spam measure in the comments box?”
Like hell we are. Yes, we get mentions in Foreign Affairs and award nominations, yadayada, but we have like 800 (sitemeter defined) visits a day. And we’re one of the best damn blogs there is! That’s underappreciated.
…that’s not what I was gonna write about at all. Um. Well.
The anti-spam hack we use was written by Stefan Geens. It’s pretty easy to implement and seems to be quite effective. Instructions here. (Don’t miss the updates to the post if you want MT Blacklist or MT 3.x compatibility.)
On another note, several of you have said you miss Edward Hugh. Edward has much better things to do than blogging right now, but he thinks he’ll come back around easter.
