MovableBlog: Archives: Stop Spam-pinging

A weblog about the Movable Type Publishing Platform and other geekery

philringnalda.com: Stop spam-pinging - a great idea. Like today, when I found out there was a typo in an old post. Making the change pinged weblogs.com, but people coming in from there would not have seen any 'new' content on my front page. (Aside: the way I found out about the typo was kinda funny. A searcher misspelled "lottery" and actually found "lotery" in my post, which prompted the change.)

Note that this requires hacking the actual executable code of MT, which means you should back up your copy before doing so.
