Webmistress dropping in for a moment. 

If you have previously written a comment and it never showed up, it probably got caught in the spam filter. 

Because, holy moley, there were a ton of spam messages in there ... but a few legitimate ones. 

I've gone through and cleaned out all of the ones I could identify, but this might mean some of the legitimate comments also got nixxed. 

For the first time since we moved to this blog platform, I've enabled "user only comments." You will need to create an account, with the restrictions noted, in order to post a comment. The spam filter may still catch it. 

I'm in the process of fixing a couple of twitchy things for that process, so I ask that you be patient. You can always contact via the primary page (not blog) to let me or Mike know of any issues.
