Typepad has a new function whereby all comments must be approved before being published; as a result, there may be a delay between when you post your comment and when it shows up. So far, I've published almost all the comments submitted, though I have edited some for typos, accuracy, and relevance. Anyone unhappy with the result should contact me, and I will remove the comment. I'm being somewhat laissez-faire in terms of "accuracy" and "relevance", at least for now. I do not intend to let the comments, though, deteriorate in the way they do at most sites. Thanks to the readers who are making that job fairly easy to date.
