It just goes to show, ya try to do somethin' nice and ya get slapped for tryin'

OK, I have been tryin' to send a trackback to Susie because I linked back to her in the comments on this post. For some reason, it just would not go through despite a multitude of repeated attempts. I finally decided to check the activity log to see if there was any indication of why I was unable to ping her, and I found this message:

Ping 'http://blog.mu.nu/cgi/mt-tb.cgi/12126' failed: Your ping could not be submitted, possibly because you suck. If you're not a spammer, try making your comment look less like spam. I am strangely allergic to the word "none", so if you used that word in your comment, let me suggest one of these alternatives: (Pause.) Uh, you know, there really aren't any good synonyms for "none". Maybe you could try spelling it differently, "Nun", perhaps. "N'one" looks kind of cute. "Noone" for emphasis. Oh, and if you are a spammer, piss off.

I suppose my IP address has been added to the mt-blacklist master list as well.
