I say “reminder” but really I’m reposting this because I am, for the first time ever, getting comments from more than one guy on my blog posts. Earlier I was mostly just leaving notices in case someone showed up, but now the tiniest inklings of an actual discussion are beginning to form. It’s cool. It also means those earlier notices are buried under like two hundred unrelated blog posts. So here’s what’s up with comments.
Real comments are still outnumbered about 2:1 by spam comments, which is why people who are posting for the first time need to have their comments approved. It’s not an Orwellian regime of only letting goodthink through, I seriously just check to see if a comment is spam and approve it if it’s not. You should be able to post automatically after you’ve had a single comment approved.
