Change in comment policy
July 12th 2017
(This is literally just some housekeeping)
This site now automatically closes comments on new posts after 56 days – I’ve been batting away hordes of spambots trying to post on some of my more popular posts, and this seemed to be the easiest and most painless way to kill the bots dead. I’ve run it in the background for a week, and it hasn’t seemed to have adversely affected the site’s operation, so I’m making the change permanent.
If you’re a real person and you want to comment on something that’s old, I don’t have much issue with you tagging it to a newer post!
