I have my own questions for Six Apart, in addition to wanting to know the answers to Dave’s.What about the alternative of working with Jay Allen to make MT-Blacklist a standard feature of MT? MT-Blacklist is great software, it works now and has a sizable installed base. Why not invest in making it better, perhaps adding the ability auto-sync to shared blacklists out on the Web? Why a centralized solution instead of a distributed one? I already have a verified identity in my weblog. Why not use that? If Trackback isn’t good enough, why not invest in making it work?
