A few months ago—just after installing Movable Type 3.11—I noticed something kind of scary: our Photo Galleries weblog was missing. I went to a recent backup and restored that weblog without much of a problem, but I was baffled as to what could’ve happened.

Fast forward to today, when I see an announcement about MT-Blacklist: Critical bug: Don’t delete weblogs! I can’t say for sure that I experienced this bug with our Photo Galleries weblog, but I had been doing some experimenting that could mean I saw the bug then. Buyer beware, as it were!
