Escaping the Goolag

In the light of the current censorship campaign of Google, I decided to move my blog to WordPress. No new posts here, just links to the new blog until all my old visitors update their bookmarks. Follow me here! Please comment on the new location unless you have technical problem with that, comment that here, I try to fix it.

And say goodbye to anon comments. Yet again forcing everyone to glue a name, mail, profile whatever to their comment. I'm sad and this anon will shut up for good and look forward to your wordpress posts as a passive reader.
For me there is nothing different. Google was shady, they are shady and they will be shady, main revenue is advertisement that on its own should be a red flag.

anyway, good speed to you, your projects and over all vision.

Commenting here due to what the above anon said.
Is your PUBG post your most viewed one of all time?

@anon: Nothing actually stops you from typing "anonymous" in the name field on that wordpress blog and "anonymous at anonymous.com" as a email address.

@Anons: I just enabled "anonymous commenting" and even before that you could just give any random name.

No, but it's the most peaked one (most viewed in a single day). The permanent pages that collect visitors every day are over 150K

My issue with Word Press was the people that would leave a "message" that was generic like "Loved your post, it was well thought out" but was really just a shill to hawk the site in their title. But you're a smart guy, you'll figure out how to stop those people.

@Anonymous, you are wrong. At WordPress those generic comments you've cited as an example automatically go to the spam filter, therefore, you can easily remove those spam comments. Normally each time you open your WordPress admin you will encounter a prompt message like this [Akismet has protected your site from 34 spam comments already.]

Yes, Daisy. It even puts my messages in the spam filter unless I am very careful NOT to link any evidence in support of my argument.
