Comments on Comments

I like the idea of comments.  I also like when my friends, family and the occasional stranger leave comments.

I do NOT like policing for spammers.  Boo, spammers!  When I returned from France I had to delete several hundred of your dumb comments.  After discovering how to block individual keywords and IPs (which I think stands for Interfering Poopyheads) I thought I had gotten them all, but still there are a few almost every day.  Please ignore them.  That's my goal.

Today I finally checked the box reading, "Comment author must have a previously approved comment."  I think that means that if you haven't commented before, I'll have to see your comment and okay it before your e-mail address will be cleared to comment as much as your heart desires.  So, don't panic if you don't see your comment posted right away.  Whatever you do, don't post it a whole bunch of times.  That would be a little like, oh, putting in both of your Metro tokens at once.  Right, nameless family member?
