Note on Comments

Unfortunately I’m currently being deluged by comment spam on this blog – many hundreds of comments a day. While most of the comments aren’t getting through, I thought the best thing to do for the time being was switch them off for a bit. It’s the most hassle-free solution for me. In any case, I get about one proper comment a month these days, with most feedback coming via Twitter or Facebook.
At some point I do need to move this blog over onto a newer platform, and put a more full-featured commenting mechanism in place. But I’m not in a position to do that right now. So hopefully leaving comments off for a few days will get this blog removed from some of the active blog-spam lists and we can get back to normal.
There have been discussions elsewhere about switching off comments altogether, but I’d rather not leave them off permanently.
Anyway, if you feel a pressing need to respond to something I’ve written in the meantime, drop me a note via a blindingly obvious email address or via Twitter, and I can publish your comment.
