No, the approved links is still three -- probably too many unapproved
sites at once.

Sure, I can probably add that somewhere -- likely a comment in the
<head> section.  

The other thing to look for is that a successful post always results 
in a redirect (i.e., status 302 or 301 or something), while an 
unsuccessful post results in a 200.
