I've had a few spammers sneak by the filter recently, and I don't want to keep deleting their comments. I'd rather just not post them in the first place. (FYI: The only comments I've ever removed on this blog are the people "advertising" where they shouldn't be.)
So, it's come down to this. I'm going to turn on the comment moderation option, which means your lovely and welcomed reactions won't show up immediately anymore. (They'll now show up semi-immediately, as I'm a compulsive email checker.) I'm sad because I love free forums of discussion, but them's the internets. Keep posting! Still can't wait to hear your thoughts. The blog's not the blog without y'all.
