I took your comments very seriously and tweaked siblogs.com a bit:
- Default sort order and filter can now be saved.
- For those of you that don't like the colorful status icons, I have added a feature to hide those icons.
Both settings are permanent and if you have cookies enabled in your browser the siblogs.com site will look just the way you want it next time you visit it.
I also added a language field to new blogs submission form.
