Comments Broken


The comments function seems to be broken; whenever anyone submits a comment, they get this:

An error occurred:

Quantifier follows nothing before HERE mark in regex m/

(Followed by what appears to be my entire blacklist file, followed by)

at extlib/jayallen/ line 3028.
I'm working on it.

Update: Fixed. I added a broken URL string (it contained two asterisks in a row, twice) into my blacklist file when I despammed late last week, and I guess comments have been broken ever since. Removing that line from my blacklist.txt file fixed it.


Spammers really are the scum of the earth, aren't they? Thanks for pointing out htis solution, I'm going to try it.

I wonder if the spammer figured out how to break blacklist, or if it was our carelessness?

No, it was me. I despammed and tried to get cute adding a url fragment with two wild-cards to the blacklist file, and the blacklist processor puked on it.
