quanta and I have made a few changes to the blog in order to help fight the overwhelming amount of comment spam that I have been getting. Commenting has been throttled to allow only one per minute and 15 per day. The number of words on our blacklist has also grown greatly, and all entries older then 30 days will have their comments closed.
If for some reason you aren’t able to post your comment, it is likely because somehow my blacklist is either blocking one of the words you used or the domain you are posting from. Please feel free to email your comment to me, using the handy link over on the site bar. I’ll add it to the entry it was intended for.
I’m really hoping these changes don’t cause any problems for anyone, but we had to do something to fight the spam. The huge amount of spam I have been getting is part of the reason I haven’t been blogging much, and I am tired of being pushed away from my own blog.
