A few words on the comments section

My paper installed new WordPress software a short time ago and it works well.

But there is a new spam filter, so some comments are getting stuck and I have to manually de-stick them. I try and get to it once a day or so.

Here are a few hints: don’t curse in the comments, don’t include a bunch of links and if your comment gets stuck, don’t resend it 20 times like somebody did last night. It was a 1,500-word discourse on something.

I understand there is a lot of passion for the Yankees. But sending your Unibomber “I hate Torre” manifesto 20 times into the spam filter is a little much. And changing your name and/or e-mail address each time doesn’t help. That just makes it look more like spam.

If your comments keep getting stuck, e-mail me and I will try and fix it.

Thanks for reading, let’s be careful out there.
