Oh, beautiful! I emptied the tables less than 24 hours ago and it's already 
at over 14,000 hits. And now that PhotoMatt and WordPress have taken over 
the top ten by hits, I'm forced to work out the categorization scheme.

I was going to use the RDF that WP generates by default but it's 
conveniently missing from some sites, e.g. PhotoMatt. Maybe later the plugin 
will generate a little RDF data for its own indexing purposes: author, date, 
title, site name and URL, categories, MPAA rating...

Matt, you're pure evil for hacking it to run on every page wordpress.org 
generates. Especially the forums and the search results. Really, really 
evil. I deactivated the Generator filter, which would have blocked all 
wordpress.org pages because they lack the meta tag. Thanks for all the 
traffic, though; it's just what I needed. Any time you want to knock it back 
to handling just the blog and pages, go right ahead. Until then, I'll just 
populate this here referrer blacklist and... :-)

Does anyone know of any service that utilizes vote-for/vote-against tags 

Thanks to all other testers, too. Email me if you have suggestions or 
concerns unless you think it would be of interest to the list. Check 
www.blogsoftheday.com periodically for updates to the plugin source and see 
where your site ranks!
