Let me know if you have any problems with the website

I’m testing out a fancy new anti-spam, caching mechanism that is supposed to speed things up for regular visitors, while making things much more difficult for spammers and other “evil doers”. Unfortunately, things can always go wrong, so if you have any problems with the site, please let me know — either leave a comment here, or if that doesn’t work, you can find my email address in the About page.

Thanks, and hopefully all you will notice is faster loads, less downtime, and no spam.

  1. On the main page, the line that includes “about” (it also has “do something” and others) is not showing up. (Firefox browser, if it matters)

    Down with the spammers!

    Thought dancer, Mac or PC? What version of Firefox? I can’t reproduce the problem.

    p.s. I just check the stats on the new caching mechanism, and it has blocked almost 50 attacks (from spammers, exploit attackers, and botnet zombies) since I installed it late last night. In case any other bloggers are interested, it is CloudFlare from Project Honey Pot (but it is in beta and not available to the public yet).

    It looks like a spammer has hacked into your front page, there’s a huge ad for Meg Whitman there!

    Google AdSense, the ultimate spammer?

    I have the same issue, thought it was by design until I looked at your source code. Not sure why it is doing it. Happens to me on both IE 8.0.7600.16385 and FF 3.6.10. I noticed this issue before the spam updates, I believe.

    On this page, I see the link bar below “Humor and Hypocrisy from the World of Politics”. But on the main page (http://www.politicalirony.com/) I don’t see it.

    On pages for individual posts, there is a horizontal link bar right below “Humor and Hypocrisy From the World of Politics”, but on the main page, that horizontal link bar doesn’t exist. Instead, there is the large right-hand side menu that should start with “Search” followed by “Forum” and then “Info” (right underneath “Info” is “About”, “Do Something” and “Submit Ideas”). The sidebar also has “Subscribe”, an advertisement, and so on.

    Do you see all that?

    I use Google Chrome and have not encountered any problems. As a suggestion, it would be great if the comments section had a subscribe option (to subscribe to follow up comments).

    Under “Subscribe” click on “RSS comments”. Right now, that’s the only option for subscribing to comments. But you can feed it into any RSS reader, and many email clients can act as an RSS reader.

  12. TenThirtyTwo nailed it. I’m so used to seeing the “about” etc under the title when I’m in the comments page that I didn’t even notice that it was on the sidebar on the main page.

    My bad.
