Holy crap, I'm a jerk. I just got an email from a reader who said that my comments section thought he was spam and started swearing at him! And he's an Italian anti-idiotarian; I certainly have no intention of chasing him away! Come back, please!

So he gets his own plug here on my blog for being a good sport, reporting the error message, and saying "It is truly inspiring to read about how you cope with your husband's absence. I can only tell you that my heartfelt best wishes are with both of you. At least some of us old Europeans appreciate what you and he are doing!"

Go visit serenade...the coolest European ever.

Why are you a jerk? Sounds like MT has some rude anti-spam deterrent built in.

I know how serenade feels. One blog's software went berserk on me and told me to **** off. Worse yet, it signed that nastiness with the blogger's name without his knowledge. The program had seemingly taken on a life of its own and even started to complicate things for the blogger himself, who switched to MT in the end.

Hmm. I have the latest version of MT and as far as I know it's not cussing at people in the comments. If it does have such capability, I wonder if it's at all customizable? I'd rather write my own antispammy curses.

Um, no, that's my fault. I'm not sure exactly how Serenade got into the Blacklist, but the logs say it was me.

Apologies to Serenade and to Sarah.

I visited his blog, and he is indeed cool.

This is a really big moment for me now - I can enter my URL in the comments form... :-)

Ah, Pixy - I think I know what happened, and needless to say it was my fault. I e-mailed you about it - let me know if I was right.

And Sarah - "coolest European ever"? I must be at least number 2! :-D But seriously, thanks for the plug, and don't worry - I never considered not coming back!

Well, I know...there's Nelson Ascher and the Frogman and David...but you're right up there on the cool list!

Dominic - that might have been it. I'm not entirely sure.

In any case, I'll try to be a little less trigger-happy from now on. :)

Though at least I didn't blacklist the word "none". :)
