I’ve decided to turn off comments on my posts. I’ve been manually approving comments, but all the spam has gotten to be too much. I used to get a couple hundred comments of spam every few weeks. Now it’s more like thousands. Not sure what happened, but I can’t (and just won’t) take the time to wade through all of it.
If you want to contact me about a post, my about page has my twitter information. I’ll probably integrate any back-and-forth I have with someone into the post for the benefit of others.
