A technical note

If you wonder why, when you post a comment here, it sometimes doesn't show up for, like, an entire day, that's because it gets caught in the spam filter. I have no idea why--the person's having commented before and, you know, the comment CLEARLY NOT BEING SPAM does not seem to assuage the spam filter's suspicions. I get an alert when you comment, but the alert doesn't actually tell me, "Oh, and BTW, the spam filter's holding this one hostage, so come on over to your blog and let it go ASAP."
