Moving From WordPress To Github

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 7:41 pm

Because WordPress is insecure.

Over the past few months I’ve gotten so many more comments than I used to get. Not to say that I get many comments but lately it is has become a problem. They are not sincere comments. They are fishing comments. There must be a bug in wordpress that if you allow somebody to comment they can hack into the system. I do not have proof of it but still I’m sure. So I get comments like this one:

“Howdy! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick
shout out and tell you I genuinely enjoy reading through your
articles. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same subjects?
Thanks!”

They all are positive along the same BS lines. So rather than take chances on whatever damage they could do if I allowed them the ability to post I’m going to move over to github and static post via Nikolas and use Disqus for┬áreader┬ácomments. I’ll probably delete this blog once finished since the tools there are apparently so much better. Next posting here will be of the new address there in a week or two.
