Just a quick note to let you know why your comments to my blog no longer show up automatically. It turns out that someone decided my blog was a good place to post ads for online pharmacies, gambling, and all that other stuff that we apparently do not get enough of in e-mail. The other day I deleted about 40 of those comments. Since there is apparently no automated spam filter on the blog system (there is a business opportunity for you) I set it up to require manual approval of all comments. As before, I have no problems with contrary opinions and will approve those as all others. However, I can't really approve comments more than a couple of times a day, and some days not at all subject to travel schedule, so your comments may be delayed. I still want them, so please keep posting them. Just be aware it will take a while to get them posted.
Oh, and if the guy posting the spam happens to read this, I have some choice words for you, but they are not suitable for print (even electronic).
