Rule number 1 when doing a large scale edit to a blog: turn off all automatic notifications.

If you got a request to join Gravatar just now, or you saw a slew of notifications of old posts on Twitter or Facebook, my bad. I’m importing all the old posts from the previous incarnation of Evolving Thoughts to this custom hosting site.

I didn’t realise that the widgets and plugins I have set up would treat each imported post and comment as a new one. So I just spammed the known universe. I shall now go and bury my very red face in my pillow and sob uncontrollably for a while.

On the positive side, I now have about three times as many posts and comments as I used to. Maybe. I don’t have the backbone to go check right now…

    Could I have Evolving Thoughts without the spam, then? I DON’T LIKE SPAM!

    That’s why I got the Gravatar email thingy this morning, leading back to a year-old comment. Thanks.

    Here I was thinking you were wanting me to come back and comment. My mistake.

    • Of course I do! But not because I stuffed up…

    That’s ok, some of us needed a poke in the stomach to get us to realize we had been neglecting something important.

    Speaking of mistakes, one of my relatives argues that the lack of a coffee gland disproves creationism, for a just and kind god would have given us said coffee gland.

    The other possible response is, of course, “Who is this we?”
