Due to a number of trolls and the use of sock puppets, all comments for this blog are moderated for the time being. This means that no matter who you are, no matter how many times you’ve posted, your comment will be held in moderation until I see it and approve it. I make no apologies for this. Until people can behave like adults or a reasonable facsimile thereof, I’m riding herd on what gets posted on any of my blog entries. I’m not changing my routine or the way I work, either. That means there will be lag times between your post and its publication. I have a life. I am truly grateful to everyone who takes the time to discuss blog subjects with intelligence and civility, and to them, I do apologize for having to lump them in with the immature, obsessed, and just plain idiotic. Unfortunately, the commenting software I use with this blog doesn’t discriminate between friend and foe when it comes to moderation. From those readers and commentators (they usually know who they are) I ask for patience. I’ll disengage comment-by-comment moderation once people have calmed down.
