It's because we hate you

All jokes aside, I'm getting a number of mails saying that some of your comments are getting caught in our spam filter. (which is usually phenomenally accurate)

I have no idea why, I assume Kevin changed something. I have not heard from him and I have a family emergency, so I have to run.

Just have some patience if possible, I'm sure Kevin will be on it ASAP.


Update: [Kevin] I'm looking into it.

Update 2: The problem was that some asshatted comment spammer left an invalid URL that our software dutifully offered to block. The problem was that it blocked everything. It's now fixed.

The Main Index page still only displays the site background image but no other content. Is that another issue? Because, I haven't changed anything in my browser as to ad blocking, etc. where your site is concerned, but otherwise can only access content on Wizbang when/if I find a specific URL to a thread (as in, via RSS feed)...but, otherwise, by just accessing the Wizbang main index (http://wizbangblog.com with or without the 'www'), I only see the background image, nothing else.

About comment spamming, I can't figure out why the worst responsible can't be somehow prevented from doing what they're doing...not like eveyrone can't identify a certain person with a yahoo email address who registers a certain website on a road named "Malibu" in a foreign country who has an obvious obsession with tigers and texas.

Kevin - in case you check back here:

Could we also get back the function to search the site including Comment text? It used to be available last year.
