    I was wondering where Feministe went. I was missing it. Bloody h4ck3r turds.

    The Maintenance Mode has ended up staying in place longer than I was expecting. It was Lauren’s wedding anniversary today and not unreasonably she didn’t particularly want to tell her husband that she was dedicating the day to the blog instead of to them having a nice time celebrating. So we’ll get back onto it once she wakes up again!

    Just commenting to say “Thank you very much!” to Tigtog for her work fixing Feministe

    A benefit I’m noticing from the security plugins that lock out suspicious IP ranges etc is that Feministe seems to be loading much more quickly now that the bot requests aren’t hogging lots of processing time. So securing your blog makes it more usable for your legitimate readers and commenting community!
