Since offering a reward for people to start a blog, a dozen people have sent me emails and mastodon messages asking me to pay up for the blog they created two months ago, or accept their lazy 100 word article about how they set up their "blog", or for their non-technical blog about being discriminated against for their flavor of the week and I'm a priviledged asshole for not giving them money to support their flavor...

@sir Don't merge that latest patch from me. Somehow, I get a runtime error. Previous commit (your OOB one) works fine. Trying to track it down.
