I owe a lot of people here an apology.
Whenever somebody comments on the blog I get sent an email to my Gmail account. I love getting comments, and more often than not I try to answer. I thought there'd been very few comments lately, so I took a look — and there's lots of them. And I've missed them all.
What happens is, there's a lot of spam comments to this blog (to every blog, anywhere), and they get caught by Blogger before they're ever published. They still generate an email, though. And with all these spam emails showing up every day, lately Gmail has decided all email about comments on this blog is spam, and moved them directly to the spam folder.
I've missed almost all comments to this blog for the past month. I haven't ignored you, and they're deeply appreciated. I just completely missed them, due to my own inattentiveness. Again, I apologize. If there's anything you think I should answer then feel free to post it right here.
