New Year Goals, 2013

Technical Difficulties

Hi All,

Just a quick announcement. Some services have been targeting my comments and I currently have over 40,000 comments in queue waiting for approval. Since less than 1 percent of these are actual, legitimate comments, I’m going to delete them all and install a better control widget.

If you’ve had an approved comment previously, it looks like the comments get approved automatically. If you’ve commented since early December and don’t see it up there, please try commenting again in one week. By then, I should have the new stuff in place.

Thanks, and please email me if you have a recommendation for a good widget to avoid the problem in the future.

Best, and happy new year.
