Blogspirit Now Worse Than Ever

I’ve had my problems with ‘s so-so service before. They suffered DDOS attacks without notifying bloggers in a timely manner. Gravatars never worked. Comments and templates have been broken. The support blog is a joke, as is the pay-based help center.

I wrote a ticket because of massive trackback spam that blogspirit lets through, even when I turn off trackbacks on old posts, and the next day I find that the problem is now worse then ever.

  • The support ticket I had is now gone. Not just “closed.” But gone, with no record.
  • I am no longer getting notification of new comments.
  • All of my posts are signed by “Aaron,” even though I am writing them under my login name
  • I’m still getting trackbrack spam
  • Real trackbacks, like from Coming Anarchy, don’t get through.

For the mean-time I’ve turned off guest authoring, delete the spam trackbacks manually, and boil in my own anger.

Oh well. At least I’m now down for days, or hacked. But I have lost comments.
