This blog uses an automated system to catch comment spam before it can be posted. It works very well, but on occasion can be a little overzealous. If you submit a comment and it doesn’t show up, send me a note and I’ll see if it got caught for some reason by the spam filter, and if so, get it posted.
On another topic: a lot of people post comments here using pseudonyms. By and large such comments are informative and engaging, and add to the discussion. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed in the last week comments from some people hiding behind screen names that involve pejorative language. That is certainly not acceptable. If it continues, I’ll look into taking additional steps to improve the level of discussion (though moderation, IP-banning, etc.) If you can’t resist taking a cheap shot against someone (versus someone’s idea), please post elsewhere. Thanks for your anticipated cooperation.
