Watch out for comment spam linking to facebook profiles. I don’t know exactly what spammers get out of it but it seems to be becoming more common. They add misspellings so that it’s not seen as a direct copy as easily.
For some reason, it fooled Akismet..
Notice the difference:
Unfortunately, Gnome-shell is not very good from a usabiladity peradspecadtive in its curadrent state. The deigsn (at least the big picadture) has not exactly changed that much since it was introadduced, and while A LOT of those who have tested it have given negadaadtive feedadback, Gnome has choadsen to stick with its deigsn. Just check out the comadments on every blog entry, every youtube video, every news item on the interadnet about the shell. Although I see posadiadtive feedadback as well, they are far between. That Gnome-shell have not taken this feedadback into conadsidaderadaadtion is just arroadgant and a big “fuck you” to the loyal Gnome usera0base.Its sad that Ubuntu felt they had to make their own shell, howadever, its even more sad that Gnome-shell have not lisadtened to the criadtique of the curadrent state of affairs.If I peradsonadally have to choose between Gnome-shell (as it is now) and Unity, I will go with Unity. I am sorry, but the curadrent way of switchading between tasks are just not acceptadable in Gnome-shell.

Unfortunately, Gnome-shell is not very good from a usability perspective in its current state. The design (at least the big picture) has not exactly changed that much since it was introduced, and while A LOT of those who have tested it have given negative feedback, Gnome has chosen to stick with its design. Just check out the comments on every blog entry, every youtube video, every news item on the internet about the shell. Although I see positive feedback as well, they are far between. That Gnome-shell have not taken this feedback into consideration is just arrogant and a big “fuck you” to the loyal Gnome user base.
Its sad that Ubuntu felt they had to make their own shell, however, its even more sad that Gnome-shell have not listened to the critique of the current state of affairs.
If I personally have to choose between Gnome-shell (as it is now) and Unity, I will go with Unity. I am sorry, but the current way of switching between tasks are just not acceptable in Gnome-shell.

I just sent myself and a larger email group a message from Google Reader using the built-in email functionality. It asked me a captcha which I thought was strange, but filled it out anyway.
Then I didn’t receive the message… On a whim I checked the spam folder. It was there..
In summary, while using a Google Service, under my Google Account, I sent an email message to the same account that was then flagged immediately as spam.
I think I’m going to watch my spam folder a little more closely.

Search deep with in yourself and say, “I am not a fish!”. This actually worked for me. I am aware that appears to make no logical sense. At least we are getting a better idea of where hiccups come from:
The White House website has been down for the first 8 days of my petition being on it. It only has 4 days left to get 25,000 people to sign. If the petition page doesn’t load, please comment on my blog.
The text of the petition [Closed]:
We believe that the corn subsidy is making the US weaker economically, making Americans less healthy and more dependent on oil. It costs tax payers billions of dollars a year to subsidize corn and what do we get in return?
High Fructose Corn Syrup in our food. Corn ethanol is not working, other alternatives like sugarcane aren’t being looked at. Many of our farmers grow only corn, which results in higher prices for other fruits and vegetables.
