The packaging and selling of doubt about scientific knowledge »« What is an ad hominem? What isn’t?

Pardon the pingback spam.

To mitigate the effects of all the pingbacks I’m generating as I go through my archives and update image links to the new host, I’ve implemented a widget on the sidebar to show the last 20 comments. The REAL comments were scrolling off the tabbed Recent Comments widget too quickly with all the pingbacks I was generating.

I’d turn off those pingbacks, but first, I’d never remember to do it every edit, and second, I figure this also has a utility function of advertising two of my older posts every time one is generated. That can’t be a bad thing, as far as I’m concerned. Now that I’ve got a whole new audience, I’m sure my older stuff is new to SOMEONE.

    I don’t think anyone would be in the least bit upset if you kept the recent comments sidebar at 20 comments even after you finished working with the archives.
