One of the joys of running a blog is dealing with the maintenance of it. That includes fixing things - or trying to fix things and failing miserably and then looking ridiculous for keeping non-functioning stuff on the blog.

So it has been with the code that allows people to comment on the Salad.

Recently, I saw this posting on April's site talking about what a comment Nazi I am. I thought it would be good to post my reply so visitors to the Bowl would understand that there isn't a vast right-wing conspiracy by The Comments Man to keep you down:


If you had e-mailed me, I would have explained that there's a difference between filtering and bad comment code.

I've had problems for 6 months with the code and have tried to fix it to no avail.

It even stops my comments from being posted on the site on occasion.

So before you go all witch-hunty on me, understand that some things are restrictive and some things are just downright faulty.

On that note, nice blog. I like the writing and the personal posts.

I think it may not like ellipses -- I use them alot, and everytime I tried to post a comment that it called "questionable" I had used them. Hmmm . . .
