Privacy Statement

Submitted by C B Wright on

'Tis the season to tell people exactly what information we do and do not collect. Most sites are doing this because the European Union just passed a law that makes them. I'm not entirely convinced this site is obliged to do any such thing, but I do believe that making people aware of what information is gathered and used on the net is a Very Good Thing. As such, I present to you, to the very best of my knowledge, a list of information that is collected and used by Eviscerati.Org.

Spam Blue Laws?

Submitted by C B Wright on

As I have mentioned repeatedly in the past this site has been getting hammered by blogspam. Every day it would be inundated by hundreds of bot-spawned posts trying to hawk their wares in an inappropriate manner.

But not yesterday.

Yesterday the only activity on the spam filter came from two posts from real people that were censored for no reason that I could see. But there was no actual blogspam.

Blogspam took Sunday off.

Troubleshooting The Site Crashes

Submitted by C B Wright on

Thursday the site crashed again. I'm pretty sure it's a mysql problem, which is unfortunate because I don't have enough experience with mysql to figure out how to prevent it from happening. However, after looking at my database after the last few crashes I found something interesting. Maybe one of my considerably-more-experienced readers can suggest some way to avoid this problem in the future? Read on.

Well, I'm back from Louisiana. I'm pleased to report that everything went well, the adoption was finalized and everything is completely legal. All we have to do is wait for Louisiana to mail us her amended birth certificate.

Thank you to everyone for all your well wishes.

Now for some more site-specific news (after the break).

Comments Return

Submitted by C B Wright on

I have re-enabled comments on the site. I'll be at work all day today so I won't be able to administer any spam that creeps in. To discourage spambots I've required that all comments be previewed before they post. I know some people have been annoyed by this in the past (and it won't block 100% of the bots in use today) but it's better than setting up captchas or disabling anonymous posting.
