Head’s Up About Comments & IP Addressing
Posted on May 24, 2007 Posted by John Scalzi
I entered a new spam address checker into Movable Type’s database and discovered that I was being blocked from commenting on my own site because the IP address Embarq (my Internet provider) has temporarily provided me is on the spam list. Way to go, Embarq!
Anyway, I’ve fixed this glitch, but you might want to check to see if you can leave a comment by dropping one here. Just a plain comment — don’t confuse the comment filters by adding a URL. If your comment gets swallowed by the ether, drop me an e-mail. If I get too many dropped comments, I’ll decide what to do from there.
Update, 2:35pm: It’s blocking too many people. I’ve dropped it for now.
