Removing mmark has me grumbly

So the Hugo team is deprecating the mmark Markdown parser. This is an understandable decision. Providing all those options must make Hugo a challenge to maintain and improve.

Well anyways I fixed it – sort of – with some Perl.

I spent my free time wrestling with trivial site details instead of writing posts and having fun. If it was due to my own misguided experimentation, that would be fine. That happens all the time. But no. I had to convert half my site because of someone else’s decisions.

That sort of thing sticks with you.

Mentions are sent to webmention.io. I fetch the latest mentions when building the site, so I may not see your feedback right away. Especially if my site's broken, which is often the case.

Public replies and mentions might be shared on the site, but I try to do a little quality check first.
