So, apparently: sharing brushes, tutorials and comic for free on the Internet will also get you death threats. I receive a lot of them right now (attachement, this morning).

Problem: my CMS Pluxml only shows IP adresses in admin. It has no other tools to take actions in case certains IP range detected (eg. put the comment offline and in a moderation queue).

So, I spent sunday coding my own system for that with as usual a nested set of yak shaving action.

Now I want my sunday back, please?

@davidrevoy Giving away things for free attracts the worst people. Sorry you have to deal with it

@Gargron

Thanks,

No worry, the real drama I had today was: dealing with PHP on sunday and inventing missing moderation tool to a CMS I use since 15 years... instead enjoying barbecue time and relaxing with my wife and cats 😆

I should probably stop self-hosting blog and comments system and go full time on social medias...

@davidrevoy @Gargron You could keep the blog and for the "interaction" point to social media as part of the static page template, disabling any commenting feature on the blog.

Social media is kinda icky when it comes to content ownership and creative control (what happens around the content you post) but it's relatively good in its discussion management features.

Exatcly. That really something I'm considering right now. Especially using Mastodon and Fediverse platform. ( This method: carlschwan.eu/2020/12/29/addin by @carl )

I think there's value in not having comments show up with your posts: That's your site and Joe Blow needn't be able to put something on there. Both from a "I also don't let random people enter my rooms and graffiti their slogans onto the walls (even if I can then go and remove them)" point of view and in an attempt to side-step increasing litigation: Not having comments on your site means that there'll never be a judge stealing your time deliberating over "That site is Revoy's, is he responsible for that blurb below his post?"

If there's something of value in the (off-site) discussion, you can still append something to the post like "(update $today:) $person pointed out in our [discussion]($url) that $whatever_needs_mentioning. Thank you, $person."

(Of course you know the interactions on your site best. Such an approach might lose too much to be worth it for you.)
