Live from the Green Midget Café

Last night I tried to add a comment to one of my posts and found my comment classified as junk by the Movable Type spam filter. While I retrieved my comment from the junk pile, I found a few others that had been misclassified as junk and got them published, too. My apologies to the commenters for the screwup.

MT’s comment system is a mystery to me. I’ve tried “authentication,” but my comments don’t get posted, despite my having a TypeKey account. So that had to be turned off. To combat rising spam (if you spammers only knew how little traffic this site gets!) a few weeks ago I made the MT junk filter more aggressive. Too aggressive, apparently, so this morning I dialed it back down. At least now I can comment on my own site. With luck, others will be able to comment, too.
