    Your own site is on your blogroll? Why? So your readers can find it?

    There is a reason for that but it is a bit complicated. It has to do with automatically sucking sites off the scienceblogs list of scienceblogs sites (that is how it got there). Then, I decided that was stupid because a) I don’t actually read most of the Sb sites, b) it enhances the really not very accurate idea that we Sb-ers are in some sort of conspiracy, and c) actually, there are a number of Sb sites I would prefer to NOT have on my blog roll (including my own, of course).

    But, it is actually hard to take a site off my blog roll. That is a safety feature. So it is still there even though I keep deleting it.

    Obviously, I need to implement a third script that REMOVES sites from the blog roll….

    Actually, even though I like doing this with pure text files (for reasons of purity and shit) I really should be doing this with mySQL. That would give me more tools to work with.
