Iâ€™m almost ready to move SB&LB over to WordPress in order to make it more easily extensible, maintainable etc. Much as Iâ€™ve had tremendous fun with Blosxom, itâ€™s too hacky and crufty for the poor server to cope with: operations involving lots of posts are especially slow because itâ€™s based on files rather than a database.
Also, God help me, Iâ€™ll be permitting comments.
My instinct is still largely against them, I have to say. How do I stop dickheads commenting? How do I get rid of the hairsplitter, the lunatic, the ignorant and the chav? Whatâ€™s the etiquette for deleting comments you donâ€™t like, without turning the whole thing into Harryâ€™s Place or wherever it was? How, basically, do I limit comments to other decent chapsâ€¦? But maybe, when the barbarians are at the gates, you should just go ahead and let them in, because they only look like barbarians from a distance.
Also, if this pans out, I could actually end up with a fanbase like that Kos chap.
