Aside

Hi everyone:

I’m sorry to say we’ve been deluged with spam comments this last week. Once on a list, always on the list so I’m afraid it isn’t going away. We use the Askimet plugin that prevents junk from getting posted. But it means at least twice a day, trolling through the spam, like 12-15 pages, to find the real comments. We simply can’t continue to do that.

So, if your comment has not appeared and you think it is important, please message editor@doubtfulnews.com and I will search for it.

It SHOULD be approving certain comments but things aren’t working as they should. Bear with us as we get through this and PLEASE NOTE, make your comments pithy and informative and I will be glad to make sure they are important. If they are just asides, they just don’t add that much to the story, I’m not as concerned. Sorry, this is basically a two-person operation and we are stretched REALLY thin.

Thanks for your understanding.

Editors
