Scotedublogs misuse

I'm afraid that someone in South Korea is labouring under the misapprehension that putting encoded email messages into the tags of blogs at will make something happen.  It doesn't make anything happen, apart from wiping the existing tags for the blog, and causing me to send an abuse report to the isp of said South Korean.

I've put some code in place to catch nonsense tags, and am going to restore the tags from a backup of the database, but it might be worth checking the record for your blog to see if the tags are looking OK.


  1. Thanks for the warning, Robert. I've just checked tags - nothing untoward. To be honest, I wasn't really aware of them, and have added a few more words which are relevant. I'd be interested to hear if you receive a response from the ISP concerned.

  2. Glad it's OK Alan. No chance that I'll hear back from the ISP, but that doesn't mean that they won't take action. ISPs have a specific email address for reports of abuse, and the auto-reply usually says something like "we will look into this and take appropriate action but probably won't be back in touch with you."
