Problem with MT and a blast from the past

Posted by on April 9, 2004

Jacob and I found a potential problem with MT last night, and here is the amusing story to go along with it:

I was idly obsessively checking my stats when I noticed I was being linked to by a page I’d never heard of which was not spam or a search engine. Naturally, I went to check it out. Imagine my shock to find a girl from high school. She had Googled her own name (we’ve all done it) and found my site, where I impoliticly (but I don’t think rudely) referenced her a couple of years ago. Apparently, this creeped her out.

Not wanting to be a creep, I deleted the entry. Here is where the problem lies: the entry can still be reached by following her link to it, or by Googling for it. I confirmed it with Jacob: I’m not inept, MT just has a weird issue. This means that any entry you have created and deleted might still be out there. Hopefully there will be a fix for this coming from the Lad when he gets home, but in the meantime, be warned.

Anyway, hopefully this will not turn into some war of meta-blogging. I just wanted to 1) warn people about the MT thing and 2) reassure this girl that the entry will be down as soon as I figure out how to do that.
