I hit a snag the other day when posting comments to a few of my blogs. It told me that I was abusing my own blog. Perhaps you've had a similar experience on this or the R3 Frontline blog?

Earlier in September, I had to tighten up the blog software a little. It's possible that I went too far and that it's too restrictive. But, you need to tell me if this is the case, because I don't have time to look over the logs.

In general, the abuse detection algorithm scores your comments based on:

  • content length (very short comments are penalized)
  • hyper-links (one is about all you get)
  • post timing (if you post within two minutes of another comment from the same IP, watch out)

If the combined score exceeds the limit, then you'll see that abuse message.

Let me know if I need to make adjustments.
