Spam attack; comments moderated


My apologies.

Please, no spam.  No offense to Spam, I hope.

Please, no spam. No offense to Spam, I hope.

Today the site has been hit with major spam attacks from a couple of different directions.  WordPress’s wonderful Akismet software captures a lot of the stuff, but someone has figured a way around it (temporarily, I trust), and I’ve been swatting spam down for most of the day.

To keep the comments clean, I’ve put a control that disallows comments except from known and relatively trusted accounts. If you’re new here, be patient.  It may take two or three hours tonight before I can approve a first comment.

Please don’t let that stop you from commenting.  Legitimate comments should all appear, shortly.

Thanks for visiting.

Please play nice in the Bathtub -- splash no soap in anyone's eyes. While your e-mail will not show with comments, note that it is our policy not to allow false e-mail addresses. Comments with non-working e-mail addresses may be deleted.
