Out of curiosity I dug around in my gmail Spam folder a bit and found three legitimate messages squirrelled away in there. I labelled them “Not Spam,” but since then gmail has been all pissy, like, “well well, look who’s the expert on Bayesian filtering. Maybe you’d just like to sort your own email, Mr. I’m-better-at-identifying-spam-than-100,000-servers.” So now all “Sma|lCap c0mpany in the right sect0r” announcements go right to my Inbox. I’m not sure what to do now. Maybe if I sent gmail some flowers and an “I’m Sorry” e-card?
Also! remember how I was whining about all the comment spam this site receives? Problem solved. I installed MTModerate [info] over a week ago, and nary a single comment spam has slipped by yet. NARY I SAY! So far it’s been 100% effective in completely blocking comment spam, which is pretty great but, if I had my druthers, it would just strip the URLs out of the submissions and leave the comment text, since most of them say things like “wow great blog keep up the good work” and, frankly, my ego always appreciated the boost.
