Note about comments

One regular reader and commenter wrote in to say that her/his recent comments were not appearing and wondered whether she/he had been banned so I thought I would clarify the comments situation.

The first point is that I have not banned anyone. First time commenters will have to wait for me to approve it (this is a spam prevention measure) and that might take a few hours for me to get to it, but once your initial comment has been approved, all subsequent comments should appear immediately without my approval.

Having said all that, you would have noticed that we have transformed the format and during the transition there have been instances of people’s comments ‘disappearing’. If that happens to you, please send me an email and I will investigate and see if it can be fixed.
