Well, Matt fixed the comment spam that was keeping me too busy to post. There were a few more this morning, but it was only 100 instead of the 400 a day that I was deleting, and they may have been left over announcements. So cross your fingers and toes, dear reader, and we’ll see if the long seige isn’t done.

Happy new year to you all, and I hope to talk to you soon!

    thanks for your kind comment on my site this morning about my son Tomás.

    I have posted quite a bit on comment and trackback spam on my own site and have come up with a strategy which now means I no longer need any anti-comment spam plugins and I don’t moderate the comments on my site and yet I no longer get the dozens od spams per night I used to see.

    See here for more.

    Hope this helps,
