I have posted in the past about the tribulations of inviting comments to my posts, a few friends post interesting and worthy responses but the vast majority of comments – over 400 a month – are vaguely complimentary but include links to sites selling dubious pharmaceuticals, videos or get rich quick schemes.
Yesterday I received a comment:
I tried to publish a comment previously, yet it didn’t shown up.
I think your spam filter might be broken?
No I don’t think so, I think it’s working just fine.
And I’m not inviting comments to this post!
