Over the past couple of days, for some reason, Akismet has not been catching spam anymore, meaning I get a good 10-20 e-mails a day about spam comments awaiting my attention. Until this is figured out, I’ve restricted comments so that you have to be signed up to comment.
I addition, the problem I mentioned a few months ago, where someone posts a comment and it gets lost without a trace, is apparently still ongoing.
I’m sorry for the inconvenience.
If anyone has any idea about either of these problems, your input would be appreciated. I will look into them as soon as I can and see what can be done.
EDIT (April 2012): The problem fixed itself somehow. Commenting is now open for all.
