On using your Type Key 'home page'…

Like most readers of Slugger I’ve developed something of a love/hate relationship with TypeKey, our chosen solution to torrents of comment spam sent out by a multitude of unscrupulous companies. I hope that our ongoing upgrade will finally bring in those people whose firewalls currently will not let them post freely on Slugger.

I notice that most people have chosen not to input details on their typekey homepages. That’s a shame, because it could be a means of finding out a bit more about where other posters are ‘coming from’ – without necessarily giving away personal details.

On my own homepage for instance, I’ve chosen to make my email available publicly. You don’t have to of course, but it does allow people to have private, off site conversations.

I have also included a list of sites I’m involved in (I wish they’d let you change the order, otherwise you need to input the least important first and most important last). And I’ve just filled in a couple of the favourite sites list (a mini blogroll if you like).

  • Belfast Gonzo

    “creative animateur”

    Poseur!

    :o)

  • Mick Fealty

    yep, that one’s subject to revision!

  • peteb

    I’d revise that immediately if I was you, Mick :o)

  • Mick Fealty

    Good man Keithm!

  • Mark McGregor

    Ok then. I’ve done mine, not up to Keith’s benchmark though.

  • Mark McGregor

    Mick,

    You should also point out the risks of providing access to your email address. You can be open to receiving some nasty stuff. My now infrequent supply annoyed me initially then I set some simply rules for directing mail to the junk folder.

  • Mick Fealty

    Good point Mark; well made!

  • Belfast Gonzo

    Mark

    Is that a couple of Sinn Fein mugs in your profile?

    :o)

  • Mark McGregor

    Good god I never thought of that. 😉

  • Belfast Gonzo

    Let me guess: Gerry and Martin?

    Right, I’m stopping that before it gets any less funny…

  • peteb

    Now, now, leave pat and cg alone ;o)

  • Mark McGregor

    BTW has Keith admitted in flowery language to being a proud racist on his? Or maybe he would call it ethno-realism or some such crap.

  • maca

    I always wondered why so few people had anything on their Typekey homepages … something to hide?

  • Davros

    Blimey- I did a double take at Mark’s enjoyed site.
    “Simply The Best” ? Wasn’t that linked with …..

  • Mark McGregor

    Davros,

    Never thought of that either. [rollseyes]

  • Davros

    I like the Pic Mark 🙂 Can I link to the T shirt of Gerry and John Hume on your website ? 🙂

  • Davros

    Mick – Like the African site – what does 2Ag amharc ar Afraic” mean ?
    Can I ask you to add a link to the Hunger site here ?
