Comment apologies.

A brief note today to apologize for comment weirdness happening on the site. Recently I've had to add the Captcha verification stuff when people want to comment (which I hate doing) because I was getting hit with hundreds of spam emails that I had to go in and clear manually. And now, for whatever reason, comments that are NOT from spammers are getting dumped in my spam folder. This happened earlier in the week on the Caitlin Moran post, so many comments were delayed. So sorry about that. I'll see what I can do to fix things so when you comment, the comment appears immediately.

In the meantime please do continue to comment--the comments are usually the most informative part of this blog, after all. Thanks!
