So, yes, I did just accidentally delete the last 200 comments. Let me explain why.
You see, we are using an old versoin of Movable Type, and an old version of MT Blacklist. Recently, when I’ve tried to add new blacklist entries, I get an error about exceeding the maximum packet length. No, I don’t know what that means. Anyway, I meant to do a search on a text string, and accidentally searched on all of the last 200 comments, then hit delete before I realized my mistake. Whoops, down the memory hole.
Further, I’ve long since forgotten the login to the cpanel and ftp so I could update to blacklist 1.65, the latest version this MT version will support, from 1.64. One of you cats back on the ranch should do that. Also, you should fork over the $99 for the latest unlimited version of MT Personal. Look, there ought to be enough of you to scrape together $100. Then you can update, and I can stop this madness.
