I had an automated blogroll here, powered by Google Reader, but Google, in its near-infinite lack of wisdom, killed Google Reader. Prior to this murder, all I had to do to put a blog on my blogroll (or to take it off) was to place it in a Reader folder called, appropriately enough, "blogroll" (or, of course, to remove it). I use The Old Reader now for following blogs, but it seems to have no way to something similar regarding the blogroll. If you know of a way to do this, please let me know.

Maybe I look stupid . . .

. . . but I do know how to run a search engine!

I got a comment on a recent post, UberTwitter for BlackBerry – Everything TwitterBerry Wishes it Was, that was from a source that made it look like spam. But the comment itself said “Hey, great post, very well written. You should write more about this.” Hmmm. Pretty generic, but it might just not be very imaginative. Is it live, or is it Memorex? Well, that’s what copy-and-paste and search engines were invented for. Grab the whole phrase, head over to AltaVista Advanced Search and do a search for the exact phrase.

Yeah. 173 results, all apparently by the same spammer. I deleted the comment. Guess I’m not as stupid as I look.
