And if it all makes this less likely to happen
then so much the better.
In the meantime, comments are going on moderation. This means 2 things
a) I can deal with them at my leisure, rather than responding on a daily basis
b) I can filter out some of the unwanted stuff. The occasional commenter seems to visit here intent on picking an argument. If anyone wants to do that, please do it on your own blog and stop fishing here. I'm aware of other blogs which ban particular commenters, and I don't really want to do that, but I will if I have to.
