Technical Difficulties: Commenting "Malfunction"
Imagine for a moment a dark-haired, brown-eyed young man, about 17 years old, sitting in front of a white iBook laptop in an apartment in Alabama and experimenting with the commenting features for his blog.
Imagine this young man innocently clicking on "Beta Features" and, being full of curiosity, enabling the first feature he sees: comment moderation.
Further, imagine this young man exiting his browser and -- in the hustle and bustle of the work he is doing -- promptly forgetting all about enabling comment moderation and its consequences.
Finally, imagine the feeling in this young man's stomach when he remembers what he had done (two and a half weeks later) and realizes that there are over 30 comments that neither he nor his brother had seen or responded to -- all pending his "moderation" before they would appear on the blog.
You can stop imagining.
Sadly, the above story is all too real. You see, I (Alex) am that dark-haired, brown-eyed young man and I did, in fact, enable comment moderation two and a half weeks ago and promptly forget all about it.
My deep apologies to everyone who has commented over the past several weeks and not received a response.
As of this evening, at 11:30 PM (PST), all comments have been restored and comment moderation has been disabled. Commenting will now work as it did before and questions will be answered shortly.
Thank you all for your forbearance. God bless you!
