A message from your blogger

A regular participant tells me he’s had a couple of comments vanish instead of posting, and he was worried I had banned him.

In 18 years I have only had to exercise the banhammer three or four times. I have never done so without several warnings, and I would never stealth-ban anybody.

Every so often the blog gets glitchy about accepting comments. My only suggestion for the moment is that if you have anything longer than a sentence or two to contribute, please compose it in a text editor and save it before pasting it into the comment box, so that you don’t lose your efforts.

I appreciate all participation on this blog and I’m sorry I don’t know why it occasionally gets glitchy like this, but as soon as I can I will have a look under the hood and see what’s going on.
