Spam spam spam spam
Apologies to anyone (human) who has made a genuine comment here recently, I may well have accidentally deleted it while trying to clean up the torrent of comment spam that has been plaguing this site for quite a while now. A lot of it is coming from IP addresses in China, and contains some very child-unfriendly text and links. Up to now, I've been deleting it from the comments file every few days, but quite frankly it's getting ridiculous and I've had enough. If I had the time I'd try and shoe-horn reCAPTCHA or something similar into the code, but I haven't what with everything else that's going on. So, as it's unlikely to stop, I may have to find another solution. That may involve switching to different software, but it might just end up with me disabling comments altogether, possibly just closing the blog down completely.
If you've got any suggestions, please do let me know.
