A few people have complained that they write a comment here, and it’s denied with a “comments are closed” message. Which must be infuriating, having invested time in writing something, and then having it be lost to the ether. I’ve eliminated the plugin that I was using to prevent spam, and now I’m fighting spam like the rest of the rabble. But the good news is, no more infuriating attempts to comment. I’m sorry for the trouble!
