Comments and Spam

It seems that our spam filter has been overly aggressive and has marked as "spam" some legitimate comments.  We apologize for the error.  Erroneously flagged comments within the last two weeks have been published, and the commenters have been designated "trusted" commenters whose future comments will appear immediately.  I have also tweaked the spam filter to make it less aggressive.

A while back, I turned off a method of registering on the blog that allowed a new commenter immediate "trusted" status.  Unfortunately, that feature must remain off due to the copious amounts of spam it produced.  I have also turned off trackbacks, which are largely obsolete anyway, due to spam.
