For some reason we have been getting absolutely slaughtered with Spam recently — a huge assault. Lately, about half of the posted comments are spam ads, splogs, and other space wasters.
To combat this, Trackbacks now need to be approved, and my assistant is culling the 50-100 comments we get a day with "extreme prejudice."
Try to avoid naked links (i.e., just posting a URL with no other commentary). If anything gets deleted that shouldn’t, please let me know.
