Clearly this is teacher created, usernames from a list is brilliant! Do you know if the teacher gets notified when students comment or publish a new post?

I believe so. We're setting one up for the first time next week, so I'll let you know.

All comments to this blog are reviewed before being published. The chances of you getting a comment including ridiculously obvious "hidden" hyperlinks to porn sites or other spam published is virtually zero. So, save your time as well as mine, and take your tawdry business elsewhere.
