Apparently stenography and cheese do not mix
We just completed a move of the web site to a new much more capable server.
The upgrade included a software update and and some minor enhancements. Most significant of the enhancements is spam protection.
Basically the post comments had become property of the blog spammers and we couldn’t see the forest for the trees (there was a *lot* of spam in the comments database). So we deleted all the spam and enabled some new stuff to keep the spammers out.
The spam blocking is so good, in fact, that we’re going to see if we can just turn off comment moderation altogether. That may not last, but we’ll see.
Point being: if you’re one of those who’s inclined to post comments but hasn’t been because it’s been busted here, please give it another try. It’d be nice if we could sort of re-claim the discussion here.
