I just installed WPBook in a vain (as in “in vain”) effort to allow my Facebook friends to continue to read my blog.
My blog posts are now forwarded to my Facebook Wall.
I used Wordbook for about a year but it recently broke :-(. I’m sure the Facebook people don’t like this functionality because it sucks people away from their one-website-internet plan. So we’ll see how long WPBook lasts!
In the continuing effort to fight comment spam, I installed the Bad Behavior plugin on the blog. If this accidentally stops your legitimate comment, please email me at Lee at Lee dat org.
update 4-11-11: I removed Bad Behavior a while back. See the comments
Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and the next page should load up automatically. :-)
Please tell me what you think of this change!
I’ve been using the NoSpamNX anti comment spam plugin for the last few months. It works very well. The best part is that it reduces the number of comment spams in my Akismet spam folder so dramatically that I’m able to look through the folder and rescue false positives.
Take a look at the image below. Spam comments are down from 300/day to 5/day. And now I rescue the occasional false positive.
Of course, as it becomes more popular, spammers will adapt. But it’s worked well for several months. I have noted that the Akismet chart above doesn’t track the number of false positives correctly. I’ve rescued more than the number of false positives that the chart claims.
Update 1-18-10: I have temporarily(?) disabled this plugin. Read the comments.
When you read my RSS feed, you’ll now see the number of comments in each post. So a title might read:
It Was on Fire When I Got Here (3 comments)
I installed this because comments are so very important but you’d easily miss them when reading just the RSS feed.
I encourage all my friends to install this very small plugin! It’s just 7 lines of code. :-)
