In the recent weeks, I have gotten quite a bit of not-quite-but-nearly-totally-spam-that-duisguises-really-well. As a result, I removed my DoFollow plugin. But I don’t really like that solution. I think I might change my approach and make a new commenting policy rule. A quite simple one at that: Every comment that uses some kind of product [...]
As you may or may not have noticed, I now have a second blog: haslos Politblog. I decided I’d want to blog about Swiss politics from time to time as well, and with this blog being English only and having a global rather than Swiss target audience, these subjects didn’t really fit in here. So [...]
