As might be expected, I was going through a compost phase myself this week 11 years ago. It didn’t last very long. The newly installed spam filter seems to be working generally. I say “generally,” because it snags an innocent comment occasionally and flags it as potential “spam.” I’m trying to keep an eye on this, approving any legitimate comments that are held out. (You know who you are!) Things have gotten so much better in the Comments Department, and I’ll keep working on the bugs. You just keep posting!
