I have my blog set up so that, if you make a comment and you haven’t made one before, it won’t be visible until I approve it. This is to stop spammers.
Lately I’ve had a lot of spam comments, which of course I’ve been deleting.
This might mean that I’ve accidentally deleted some real comments. So if you’ve posted a comment but it hasn’t come up, email me and let me know (news at apolitical dot info).
