Email and comments
A quick housekeeping announcement. I have eliminated the "email" field in the comments section. I had no use for the email addresses. However, SPAM bots troll the web looking for email addresses to add to their spam lists.
I never leave my email address at a public site, so it was stupid for me to host a comments page asking for it. Eliminating the field altogether was the best solution.
I encourage other webloggers out there to do the same and delete the "email" field. At the very least, the email address should not be required and clearly marked as "optional". If you are a MT user and need help doing this, drop me a line and I'll be happy to help.Posted August 12, 2002 10:33 PM | Comments (0)
