Comments On Comments
A couple of days ago, this blog crossed the thousand-comment line--not bad for a couple of months. Thanks, everybody!
Along the way, I've learned a great deal about a variety of topics: for instance, the history of AM radio, the inner workings of the patent office, software development for Palm handhelds and the retail experience at CompUSA stores.
I've also gotten acquainted with the problem of comment spam. In March alone, our filters blocked 202 attempts--many pathetically obvious--compared to 623 real comments submitted in that time, according to our software. That's a bigger problem than I'd thought it would be. At least the filter software seems to be on top of the situation, aside from a handful of legitimate, mistakenly blocked posts that I had to mark as "not junk."
So: Provided you are not a spammer, please keep typing away. You're giving valuable feedback and some great story ideas--and even when I'm just reading your posts for fun, I'm told that still counts as "work."
