I just thought I should mention that because of the ever-escalating amount of comment spam I’m getting on plasticbag.org nowadays, I’ve decided to make it the default behaviour to not publish them immediately on the site. If you’re a Typekey user, then you get a free pass – your comments will appear on the site immediately – but otherwise I’m afraid every single comment is going to get individually checked by me before it goes up. I’d really rather this wasn’t the case for a whole bunch of reasons (including my possible increased liability to legal threat) but I’m not comfortable any more having mother/daughter incest, bestiality and teen slut links on my site as a matter of course. So I’m cutting them off. It’ll mean a bit more work for me, and a less dynamic and exciting site, but I can’t really think of another solution that doesn’t end up being an ever-escalating arms race. You can read my earlier thoughts around this territory in this old post of mine: Trackback is Dead – Are Comments Dead Too?
