Shelley outs some script kiddies, and gets herself deliberately targetted and spammented, and has had to turn off commenting for the moment on her MT system. If I know Shelley, she’s gonna come out swinging. This should be fun.
The Antiblog Manifesto :
We’re doing this because bloggers provide a waste to the internet, an amassing of imbeciles who think they deserve to be heard, and think people actually care.
Your only real solution is to turn all comments off. Obviously this will mean your egos will no longer be stroked.
I actually sympathize just a teensy bit with the sentiment here, in the most general sense, if not the actions it attempts to justify. Still: if you don’t care for the legions of self-regarding bloggers, imbecilic or otherwise, Butthead, well, just go play somewhere else, and take Beavis with you.
It’s good that Ben and Mena have released a new rev of MT to try and deal with the problem, but it’s pretty clear that simple IP address throttling isn’t going to work worth a damn, so one hopes there’s something more effective in the pipeline. Neither the latest 2.661 version of MT nor MT-Blacklist (which I use) will protect you, it seems.
Edit : Phil and Shelley explain why they think the current measures are inadequate.
Update : I was waiting patiently until the crapflooders found me, via the trackback to Shelley’s post. It wasn’t in vain – the unclever little dink only took about an hour or so to muster up the skills to follow a hyperlink. I’ve closed off all comments for the moment, of course, but I’ll leave the crapflood there, for archival purposes.
Hey Butthead – this one’s for you, amigo!
Now, tell me you didn’t go to nero-online.org.
Though, between my slow connection and Firebird not being interested in most of their attempts at being annoying, it really wasn’t that much of a much. goatse, a woman with crap on her face, and the “I’m looking at gay porn” audio? I recommend less time writing crapflooding scripts, and more time looking for new disgusting things. You can’t be a really outstanding troll if people just yawn.
Heh. Goatse and Tubgirl are like old friends by now…they’re ugly, but it just doesn’t feel right if they’re not around.
Crapflooding is sooo 2001. Why won’t these trolls get with the times?
