Just so you know, ML’s spam-fighting arrangements are being altered. Obviously, we hope this will result in less spam; but just at the moment, it may temporarily result in more spam, more gnomings, and/or other unwanted manifestations.
If you’re being patient about it, thank you for your patience. If you aren’t, we’re still sorry. And if you’re flagging spam and mentioning gnomings in accord with received local practice, thank you very much indeed!
Update from Abi: The new system is in. Please post comments. Post edgy, difficult ones; post three spaces in a row and be effusively grateful. Let’s try this thing out.
Note that if you post spammy keywords, they’ll probably get through—this uses a different system than the filters it’s replacing. I reserve the right to unpublish things manually. And there may be tuning in the future.
Further update from Abi: It’s all looking very good, and I’m going to bed. I’ll look things over tomorrow and see what comments, if any, are in the wrong places. If you are hopelessly gnomed and unable to even cry for help in comments, please email me at my first name at this domain and I will investigate.
