Blogspot did it again

A while ago (GDPR day) I stopped getting moderation emails for comments.

Eventually after changing the setting to a totally different email address, and getting a confirmation email with a link, I started getting them again, yay.

However, it seems to have broken again, and I am not longer getting them - so loads of comments have only just been posted.

I'll try changing email again - thanks GDPR - this is the sort of hassle we wanted, and I still get loads of spam about which I can do bugger all.

  1. Instead of "I'll try changing email again - thanks GDPR - this is the sort of hassle we wanted", I think you mean "I'll try changing email again - thanks GDPR - this is the sort of hassle we did not want"... he he he! :)

  2. That's what you get for dealing with a company with a business model so thoroughly based on invading people's privacy that GDPR is actually a problem for it.

    Incidentally, the site doesn't seem to be allowing OpenID for commenter authentication any more. And you've let through a couple of obvious spam entries in the most recent batch.

  3. Why don't you setup a Wordpress blog on your own kit? Then just re-direct this to that.

  4. I thought something had happened to you blog in a more serious way as you hadn't posted in a while. Not even when you announced gfast and 160mbut packages.
    Which reminds me, must get a quote for regrading my fttp....

  5. They've announced G.Fast and 160 Mbps ? Didn't realise. But only check this blog for AAISP news...

    1. Yup, it was on aastatus and on an industry news site.
      But yes, I get most.of my a+a news from here too which is what surprised me, unless they're keeping it on the hush hush

  6. I checked AAISP three days ago, no G.Fast news. I've been checking regularly as I'm waiting for it.

    1. I emailed for the trial and the reply said AA are probably only doing 160/30 to start with. Given the emphasis the status page makes about increased upload being the thing of value and above 80mbps download makes little difference, to then offer potentially double download and adding only 50% to upload is in complete contradiction to those statements. Given I already get 79.6/19.9 from VDSL I'm having to think whether increasing upload to 30mbps is worth the hassle of having to be in for a pointless engineer visit, I can change a faceplate and PPPOE modem myself and the 110m line to the cabinet performs well already. I'm also unsure whether I want to pay £10 a month for such a small speed increase.

    2. I understand that, unless you have the most-bleeding-edge NTE-5 version, it requires replacing the back end of the NTE-5 too.

  7. Bizarrely, having just looked, my grandfather can get FTTP (on his mile long 9 Mbps ADSL line, no FTTC, no TT backhaul), but it's FTTP-on-demand only for my home and office lines. Quite strange to see underserved rural lines leap-frog urban ones...
