Posted on: October 7th, 2008 Oops.

Oh, no. My blog, like most blogs, gets lots of spam comments, which I then have to delete manually. Probably 95% of all comments to my blog are in the form of cheap spam.

Well, in my zeal to delete them all last night, it appears that I also deleted ALL the comments that have ever been posted on my blog. Which makes me sad.

Oh, well. Please feel free to contribute if you read something stimulating or encouraging.

    wow. if you google each the permalink from each post that had comments, and then select the cached version, you’ll be able to recover the majority of the comments. i’m not sure when google will refresh its cache, so time is of some essence. maybe i’ll get around to it at work tomorrow if things are slow.

    I’d suggest installing Akismet if you haven’t already. I don’t think it’s ever let a spam comment come through, and it lets you delete them en masse without touching the legitimate comments.
