As some of you have probably noticed, the spam filter has been a little overactive of late, and some of your witty comments (and some not-so-witty) have gotten lost in the Twisting Nether. For that, our apologies. I have spent the last hour approving some 300+ comments falsely flagged as spam, and I am about to wipe the spam blacklist clean and start over, so those of you that have had trouble should see an immediate difference. Wiping the blacklist will likely mean . . .
some spam slips through in the coming days, and for that I apologize in advance. If you see canned meat, please send a direct link to the comment (found at the comment’s timestamp) to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll police it up. Wiping the blacklist clean will also mean that some of our previously active trolls may briefly show back up and/or be given a second second chance at good behavior. I don’t expect much of this, as most of them quickly tired of bouncing off the filter and took their invective elsewhere, but if they cause trouble, they’ll go on mute again.
The comments are a big part of what makes TTAG so great, and we thank you for it. We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
