    Thank you for the linkspam!

    A formatting comment — of late some of the text has been hard-coded in various dark colors, and some is left unformatted. I read via RSS on a dark background, so this results in extra work for me to read.

      Thanks for letting us know. The linkspam team is looking into why this happens, and whether it’s an artefact of our technical process. If it is, we will look at workarounds.

      The person who assembled this spam reported back: it looks like it is due to copying links from email clients and/or pages like Pinboard into WordPress’s visual mode editor tries to preserve any original formatting that happened to be on the originating page.

      We’re sorry this made the spams difficult to read. Thanks again for letting us know. We’ll be more careful about checking the HTML source and making sure there aren’t custom fonts or colours before going live from now on.
