Comments turned off
If you have comments you want to post, and the blog won't take them yet, you can send them to me privately by email and I can post them, or you can hold them for a few hours until the spammer moves on to other targets in the blogosphere or elsewhere on the Internet.
If you do send me comments privately, please include your Blogspot url or whatever you usually use to identify yourself on Blogspot blogs.
UPDATE (0050 UTC): You can comment on posts again, but there is now another level of security to jump through. Many of you already have that level established. I won't say more in case the spammer is reading blog posts in person rather than with a spamming computer.
