Some gentle readers are more alert than I am:
is it just me being banned, or are the comments fubar-ish?
I appear to have been bitten by this bug; I should’ve known the sudden drop in comment spam was just too good to be true.
All your erroneously-spambinned comments have been restored, hoorah! And your lives – which I’m sure were on hold, pending resolution of the fubarred comments here – can go back to normal.
