I've had a policy for several days now of moderating blog comments. This is not because there has been anything wrong with the people who post actual comments -- I have been very lucky at this blog -- but because I had run out of ideas on what to do about the spam that has afflicted the blog posts. I have done my best to be prompt about approving comments, but please forgive me if I am away for awhile because I'm asleep or because of some other reason.
Confirming that this was probably the least-bad solution to my spam problem, I've rejected a lot of spam comments the last few day, including a lot of Indonesian spam, and a surprising number of messages recruiting new members for the Illuminati. The latter would be more exciting if the messages would be at least literate and plausible. I don't have time to manually remove all of the existing spam, but I'll probably try to chip away at it a little.
I have also tinkered with the site and edited some of the features, i.e. for example the collection of links to Robert Anton Wilson resources is expanded and rearranged a bit. I've tried to make it easier for visitors to find stuff and realize how much is here by now. As ever, suggestions are welcome.
