I learnt something today

I was posting a comment to Jim's tail (get it?) when I included the word "socialise", spelt as most non-Americans would. The comment was blocked because it contains "cialis". So now you know the Blacklist is working AND where the word Cialis came from...

Don't thank me for pointing this useless bit of trivia out.

It did that to me a few months ago when I tried to use the word "soci@list." I thought it was fixed.

Put something like <i></i> in the middle of the word to get round the blacklist.

I think MT Blacklist 2 (which comes with MT 3) is smarter and only blocks on links and email addresses. I'll be installing it this weekend so we'll see soon enough.

Also note that if it is in a comment on you blog you can edit it after it is posted and bypass the blacklist.

Short of that I recommend $ociali$t. Just because.

By the way, has Blacklist been disabled or something? Because I'm being overwhelmed by comment spam.

No, Blacklist is alive and well, and I haven't received any spam for a couple of days.
