Incase you missed it, I created a blacklist plugin for Windows Live Writer. So everyone who uses this thing but Joe failed. There was a bug, I made a dumb mistake and it would error if you published a post with no links in it. I missed it in my testing because I was more focused on catching links and not nailing good links. Why would I think about a post with no links at all right?
I fixed it this afternoon and am releasing a hotfix that fixes that issue. Along with the hotfix it now supports getting the blacklist from a URL. A sample blacklist can be seen here. This makes it much easier to pick up new domains as they’re added. Currently the list is not automatically updated, but that is on the road map.
You can get the new version 0.2.0 Blacklist Plugin Installer here.
