Readers may have noticed that I’ve turned off automatic commenting to the blog. The ever increasing amount of spam, some of which always manages to squeeze its way through the (fairly strong) spam filter, was getting intolerable. I’ve just discovered, however, that a handful of genuine comments from longtime readers also got caught in the spam filter, for one reason or another, instead of going to me for moderation. Sorry about that – I’ll check the spam filter more often. I’ll tone down the filtering if I see the spam level stops increasing. (Is that a possibility, or are we living in a universe pre-destined to choke on its own waste?)
Spammers, if you read at all, please don’t bother sending stuff here, since your messages will get deleted even if one or two of them get through momentarily.
