The comment spam has started and some of it is slipping though the excellent Akismet filter. I fail to understand the mentality of someone who believes that posting “calabash, gourd. (5) Autophytes A spinach stew. (18)” is a worthwhile use of their time, but that’s the human race for you.
Anyway, you now require a previously-approved comment for your comments to be accepted, so don’t be concerned if your comment takes some time to appear.
