If you attempted to comment on yesterday’s post, you may have found that it didn’t accept comments.
It does now.
As recounted some time ago, I’ve changed the default setting for this blog so that “Allow comments” is unchecked, because so many of the posts here are not really comment fodder (C&I announcements, etc.) and because I was getting ridiculous numbers of spamments that were clearly “here’s a place we can dump a comment, and just maybe it won’t be trapped as spam” efforts.
My intention is to check the “Allow comments” box any time a post could reasonably have comments.
But I forget sometimes.
By the way, the change seems to have worked: most days spamments are in single digits or low double digits, not high double digits and low triple digits.
Oh, and there were three (count them, 3) immediate comments on my Tuesday post the same day I added it (and allowed comments, only a minute or so after the initial post). All of them were wholly unrelated spamments.
This post allows comments.
