Just a quick note -- I will be making some changes to the blog in the coming days. The sidebar badly needs updating and there are few cosmetic things I'd like to do.
The most important change is that I have turned off comment moderation. I've used it for about six months now and frankly I've only nuked one spam comment in the whole time. Most of my regular readers respect what we try to do here and don't post anything objectionable in the comments section. If I see problems arise, moderation may come back.
As always, I appreciate your support of this feature and always welcome any suggestions on ways I can make it better.
