In preparation for moving all the LeatherPenguin websites to new iron (where I can work off a single install of WordPress instead of each site running off its own install and hogging up disc space), I discovered that this here rant-shack had accumulated 950+ users/subscribers. That discovery was… interesting, considering I’ve pretty much been AWOL for a long, long time.
Most–but not all–were attached to ‘yahoo.com’ email accounts, and had been created in waves. Therefore, I have flushed ALL Users/Subscribers down the memory hole, and going forward anyone using a Yahoo email account to register is SOL; that domain is now blacklisted.
I know that some of those Users/Subscribers were legit, and I apologize to those folks, but there was no way in hell I was going to slog through all those accounts to find the ones that had real people on the other end.
I also found a metric ass-ton of busted links, a slew of disappeared graphics, and all sorts of other nonsense littered throughout this site and the other sites. I’ll be spending the next few days fixing everything that’s fixable ahead of making the shift to the new crib.
