Some people have e-mailed me about comments not appearing. I was getting bombarded with over 200 spam messages, a day, and I had to install a very high spam protection control, but, it’s not perfect and it will block actual comments sometimes. I’ve modified it a bit, and hopefully it won’t delete any more comments.
