Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


I think this is a record

For me at least. It's only been public for a week or so, but the NZ coffee review website has already been found by a Chinese spammer.

Some quick hacking later, reviews from new users are now not visible in the RSS feeds or on any of the pages in the site until I manually mark them as 'OK'. Spammers get marked as 'banned' or 'deleted', depending whether I want to keep an eye on them or whether I just want them gone.

Let's see how this works.
