seems i may have accidentally blacklisted some of you recently. if this is true, please believe it was unintentional. send me an email to let me know the message you get when you are denied.

i recently added some regex entries to my blacklist to block the gambling trackback pings. i don’t know how yet that has resulted in some of you getting blocked.

i added ‘holdem, poker, gambling, casino, and blackjack to a regex string in my blacklist.

works like a champ! i didn’t know it was blocking some of you though.

i’m working to fix it.


now, even my own comments get rejected as spam.

  7. Ok…this is a test, since I was blacklisted last time.

    BTW, if you finally work out the kinks, let me know how you did it…so I can use it on my business site (it’s MT)

  8. Help! Help! My voice is being suppressed!
    Oh, heh. It’s not just me…
    BTW, I should take this opportunity to honestly thank you, Mlah, for never banning me or anything like that, which a lot of other, lesser people (some of them on your list of blogs) haven’t have hesitated to do.

  11. test. Gus got banned on other blogs? but he’s so much fun, the token liberal who visits Mlah’s place.

  12. there are a couple more. sara from somewhat silent is a lib. and visits sometime. she has to be a bit incognito now. she has a stalker/hacker who keeps crashing her site. and diana/peach is even more liberal than gus.

    tina from zen is a bit more on the liberal side then conservative…..

  13. Gus – I didn’t ban you from my site yet. But then again, I don’t write really interesting and comment hungry political posts most of the time.

    MLAH – I got my certification!! check your email.

  14. lol – – that’s pretty bad when you are considered spam on your own blog. I did that once on my blog with spam karma and it kept giving me a message to “slow down, what’s the rush” lol 🙂
