Hi guys — we’re having some issues with the robot we have in place to catch spammers in the comments section. It’s programmed to examine each post for things like certain words and phrases, known spamming IP addresses and links to other sites. Some people are finding their comments blocked by this because they’re tried to include a link to their own site or someone elses. I try to save some of these by stripping out the link, but it doesn’t work for all of them. So please, for now, don’t add links to the body of your messages. That robot glitch, while annoying, is the lesser of evils here. To give you some context, it’s blocked several hundred thousand spam since February of last year.
You can put a link to your site in the Website field of the comments section at the bottom of the posts, but if you put them in the body of your message, you may disappear into a cruelly-run robot cyber prison. It’s sort of the online equivalent of being inconveniently brown and Middle Eastern in the US right now. You might just disappear.
