I just released a whole bunch of comments that were trapped in the spam filter. (Raving Prophet, you had four or five in there…Akismet’s spam filter doesn’t like you for some reason.)
I guess I ought to mention that I don’t generally delete or block comments. I reserve that right, of course, but so far, nobody has managed to annoy me enough, and I don’t fear dissenting opinions. If I ever delete or edit a comment of yours, it won’t be because I disagree with your opinion on an issue, but because I disagree with the way you get it across. In other words: keep it civil, and don’t say anything to me or my readers in the comments that you wouldn’t say directly to my face, in my living room, with a bunch of preschoolers and your sainted old grandma listening.
