A One-Time Hassle on the Comments

All Posts 5 Comments

It must be because I’m so darn popular now, but we’ve been getting hit with spam. And you can’t even see it all, because a ton of it fills up the older posts.

Rather than moderate everything and stifle debate, my compromise is that–if I set it up properly–you have to now get your comment approved once by me, and then you are on the Safe list.

    Speaking of comments, is there any hope of retrieving those from the old blog?

    Sounds great to me Bob. Although I liked the old system of being able to just drop a post down, if it stops the spam it may be worth it.

    Louis B there is hope but it’s much slimmer than me.

    What, no more ads for boots and Viagra? What will we do?

    Would like to be on record here. Nothing would thrill me more that validation from one Dr. Robert Murphy and acceptance into the inner circle or is it more like the super firends? Do we get a decoder ring and secret password? I am still interested in the stuff you did in grad school on pacifism with regard to the American Revolution or anyting else along those lines. I assume you have my e-mail if you would like to send it direct rather than post it. I am respectful of others work and will not use it or re-post it.
