The Strange Knockon Effect Of Changing Domains

As I’ve mentioned a few times in the past few weeks and months, we’re in the process of switching over from blacknight.ie to blacknight.com.
I switched this blog over to the .com a couple of weeks ago and didn’t think anymore about it until just now.
Normally I check the comment spam filter every couple of days to see if any legitimate comments have been blocked and end up dumping several thousand junk comments.
For the last few days it’s been completely empty!
I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not, but I suspect that the spammers are confused by the redirects or something… I guess they’ll find the new location for the comment form fairly soon, but if they don’t I won’t complain!
Of course I might have just broken the blog comments … If you can’t post a comment please let me know (michele@blacknight.com)!
