So today some Russian spambot dropped 257 spam into random topics on this blog. (How do I know the spammers were Russian? Many of the spam were in Cyrillic.) Fortunately WordPress puts posts from strangers into a single “pending” file, so I was able to spend half an hour or so dealing with them.

What saddened me was that the pending file also included some perfectly legitimate responses to my posts, which for some reason were never shown to me for approval. Many of these were condolences on the death of Kathy’s sister Alice back in 2020. I’ve now approved these and they’re now available for reading.

So if you posted a well-meant, intelligent response on this blog and never saw it, I’m very sorry if it wasn’t visible. Blame WordPress for not showing it to me.
