Well, I’m willing to give it a try… comments have been turned back on. Now don’t all rush to comment on your favourite post. Truly, we only get one or two comments a month; so I’m not certain why we bother.
To prevent further spam, I’ve changed the name of the program that processes the comments. The spammers look for Web sites with links to common comment programs (mt-comment.cgi in our case) and lock in on those. By changing the name, we’ll fool them for a while.
Let’s cross our fingers and hope!
