Mental breakthrough on the blog comment spam issue

Monday, May 17th, 2004

For months I’ve been bothered by the fact that people use my site to influence their search engine rankings. But just now I realized that if Google and other sites are so easily gamed by this kind of basic HTML trickery then they deserve to have their database data corrupted with nonsense, useless results. It’s a feedback loop: as their results get more and more poisoned, they’ll figure out some other way to determine who gets to the top, and we’ll be back at the beginning.

This doesn’t mean I’m not going to try to solve the comment spam issue when/if I switch to something other than MovableType. I’m just not as stressed out about it anymore.

Oh no! “Whoopi” cancelled!

Monday, May 17th, 2004

Worst show ever pulled off TV

Comedian Whoopi Goldberg’s city-centered sitcom has been scrapped from the NBC lineup after a season of low ratings and critical pans.

Conspiracy theorying Headless Nick Berg

Monday, May 17th, 2004

One of many listings of weird details in the Nick Berg decapitation vid. Reading this and considering that it might be staged makes me feel kind of dirty, but it’s interesting none the less.

The prison abuse scandal becomes more relevant

Sunday, May 16th, 2004

Abuse Scandal Focuses on Bush Foundation:

.. Former CIA counterterrorism official Vincent Cannistraro said it was a major miscalculation to apply interrogation methods that were specifically designed to extract information from al-Qaida prisoners to Abu Ghraib and other holding centers inside Iraq. ..

.. The reasons for importing the techniques, Cannistraro said, were the frustrations at the policy level in Washington that not enough information was being obtained about weapons of mass destruction and the frustration over the lack of information about the resistance in Iraq.

Progress at last

Sunday, May 16th, 2004

The color was supposed to be lighter than the swatch. It’s much darker than the swatch. I now have a gothic bathroom. I will be shitting for satan.

I pressure washed the concrete floor. A Nile River of dirt and grease and oil ran into the ghetto streets. Poor children, their brown skin leathery and broken from the sun’s destructive rays, rushed over to lap at my stream of debris and filth, thanking me, giving me their worthless trinkets and calling me Lord. (Actually, the floor looks basically the same modulo a lot of dust and bits of whoknows; I’m going to have to cover it.)

I laid there, watching Saturday Night Live. Comfortable. Until any sketch featuring the Olsen twins, which …

The Word

Saturday, May 15th, 2004

I came across this sex Q&A site seemingly targetted at teens called The Word. A bunch of the questions appear to be people fucking around. Witness:

A bully made me have sex with a goat. Is this moral?
My brother made me eat his icecream three times a day
Had sex with mom, condom broke, she doesn’t believe in abortion
Should I keep having sex with my mom?
I can’t make my penis bigger. When I swim, theres a guy who shoves his penis in my mouth. What should I do?

Gay
gangbang during home invasion robbery

It’s unfortunate that all the answers are so fucking humdrum and repetitious.

Courtney in Court

Courtney Love, one of the world’s least photogenic people, is in court for kicking some guy’s ass or something, and it’s producing a lot of really hilarious pictures for us to enjoy. Witness:

Movable Type makes itself obsolete

Friday, May 14th, 2004

I’ve never really thought that blogging software was a super sophisticated business. Considering that half of the features don’t work right anyway I don’t see a reason why anyone would pay for a blog package. Now it turns out that Six Apart, makers of the package we use here, are going to start charging for some copies of Movable Type. It’s time to switch to something written in a sane language I guess (MT is written in crusty CGI/Perl. PHP is superior).
