It seems every blogger comes to this point and I was fortunate that I didn't reach it for over two years, but now, here I am.
Since one of my commenters has a shifting IP address and resists banning, I am forced to use Typepad's comment approval system. I didn't want to use any of the protective devices that Typepad has recently implemented, because I value the free flow of conversation and, frankly, I don't feel like reading everyone's comments. However, someone always has to drop a turd in the punchbowl.
So when your comments don't appear automatically, it's because I'm asleep or gone or busy. Blame Bill O.
UPDATE: Simple question, not unrelated:
Why is it when you’re standing there handing out “Dumba** of the Month” awards someone’s always trying to cut in line?
