A Note on Spam-Trapping

Some of you may have seen your posts disappear. This is because Akismet thinks you're dirty spammers, and I need to teach it otherwise. I get a lot (a VERY lot) of spam, and the Akismet queue ends up quite deep. So... if you post, and it doesn't show up immediately, that means it's been trapped. Email me, and I'll de-spam it, teaching Akismet that you're actually okay by me. Sorry for the inconvenience. Fortunately this is MORE convenient than wading through the spam would be. We have 8,300 legit comments on 561 posts here, and Akismet has trapped 85,000 spam comments. Do the math: we'd be 10:1 under spam without it...
