No comments!

Apologies to everyone who tried to leave a comment on this weblog: commenting has been broken for quite a while, but we’ve only realised just now. It was due to a bug in the otherwise excellent web publishing system Symphony. I’ve spent an hour trying to figure out why all comments got detected as spam. Can you spot the bug ? Please comment :)

function __isBlackListed($author_ip){
if(is_array($current_blacklist) && !empty($current_blacklist)) {
foreach($current_blacklist as $ip){
if(preg_match('/^'.$author_ip.'/i', $author_ip)) return true;
return false;
