.net messenger service isn't particularly bot-friendly. for the other major services (icq, aim, yahoo!), you can just fire off a message, but the .net system requires that you “call” the intended recipient before sending the message. nuts to that.


It's annoying in lots of other ways, too. Plus someone's already running a weblogs.com-to-msn bot (or at least they were, when I was last willing to fire it up), so the messenger-lovers aren't completely out in the cold.

I was seriously tempted to start out with "First p0st!" (Would have been 7:06, but I spent two minutes trying to remember who did the MSN version - Simon Fell.)

Probably locking the comments for x times the entry word count would be a good thing to add to an anti-comment-spam filter, wouldn't it?
