Over the weekend, I received around twenty comment spams at this website. Whilst I was tempted to disable comments across the entire site as a response to that, I decided not to, not least because sometimes there is some good and erudite discussion in the comments boxes, such as there has been in the last few days in response to my piece entitled Inadequate. Having said that, I object to being called a wanker just because someone is incapable of expressing their argument clearly.
So the comments remain, for the time-being at least. Thank you to those that use them well – you make maintaining this site very enjoyable.
