My apologies to anyone who’s been accused of harboring spambots by my blog in the past couple of days. One of the third-party blacklists used by my very favorite anti-spam plugin, Bad Behavior, started throwing false positives like candy at a parade. I’ve updated the plugin, so you may now resume normal commenting. Anyone else running Bad Behavior should update immediately.
In other news, my students might be drylabbers and plagiarizers – I have a couple of suspiciously well-written, wildly off-topic papers sitting on my windowsill – but at least they are smart enough to avoid idiot maneuvers like plagiarizing from Wikipedia. I typed quite a few sentence fragments into Google yesterday, to absolutely no avail. Go Bears!
