Quick Note re: Comments

My spam filter seems to be unusually aggressive recently and more legit comments are finding their way there; I just released a bunch. So if for some reason you’ve been trying to comment and your comment doesn’t appear, don’t panic, I’m (probably) not intentionally moderating you, it’s just a hyperactive spam filter. It’s not personal, in other words.
Now I can’t get that Monty Python song out of my head. It’s all your fault!
SPAM SPAM SPAM EVERYBODY LOVES SPAM!
(After that first comment someone had to go there. It just happened to be me :) )
Is it okay if we take it personally, anyway? You know, in the spirit of the internet.
‘Liverwurst’ and ‘burrito’ should never appear in the same paragraph, let alone sentence. To say nothing of ‘on a plate!’
Heretic lunacy in the time of Trump. Can the Apocalypse be far off?
Always fun when the meerkats of the spamfilter are staking over ;)
Oh, no!! Typo. Taking over, not staking over. So sorry, Dutch is a default setting. And “staking” is ” on strike” in Dutch.
I’m envisioning meerkat vampire hunters now.
Meerkat Vampire Hunters is a movie I’d watch.
I thought maybe you were filtering on prolixity: “This guy rambles. To the bit bucket with him!”
It probably was my comment in the Hamilton post where I quoted the lyrics “Sit down you fat motherfucker”.
Okay – apparently quote “MF” doesn’t get you banned.
Here is the longer rap which Lin-Manuel cut to distill to that one line (killing your darlings – in transfer from off-broadway to broadway he cut his own rap to tighten things up)
Yes I’m a HamFan – from the album, never been to broadway.
That rap ended my day on a perfect note.
