WordPress.com has spam filtering by Akismet, and I think it has eaten every comment made on this blog since 13 January. I can’t find a way to turn Akismet off, and it is malfunctioning — it is supposed to save the “spam” for me to look at first, but instead it just deletes them. The problem is that every comment that it has let me see was *not* spam, so I think it’s eating legitimate comments too 😦 So if you have left a comment here in the past four days, please email me instead. My email is thesickchick at gmail dot com. Sorry for the trouble!!!
