blog name handling at

so some idiot is pinging to change the name for various other blogs in the portuguese weblogging community (which just loves to slurp up my bandwidth — but that’s a different story).

i guess i’ll have to stop trusting the name being passed on pings, and start sniffing them out of the feeds and html pages (and ignoring changes that come via, which is subject to the same abuse).

maybe this will finally push me over the edge into rewriting the ping-handling code in python so i can more easily re-use mark pilgrim’s feed finder.
