Ah the irony...

Some moron from pulled down 36633 copies of my article on bandwidth saving tips for movable type sites yesterday using "Microsoft URL Control - 6.00.8169". All I can say is: hello, goodbye...

... oh - and could the people trying to get in comments linking to Polish polyphonic ringtone provider please give up? All URLs within this domain have been blocked from comments due to comment spamming (and if you continue like this, you should make your way on to hundreds of users' blacklists in no time!) - attempting over 100 comments after being blocked constitutes something closer to insanity, you know...

Looks like the Polish ringing tone providers were rather clever: it only took them 100 tries to get themselves onto your blog's main page, with web site address and everything... :-)

But your blog's search engine credit means that if I google for "polish polyphonic ringtone provider" your site comes up first - and the two-line google abstract handily includes the URL for the advertiser's website. Now I know it's not the same as having a real link, but as they say, any publicity is good publicity...
