It’s been about a week since the blog had its last hiccup, and I disabled a number of plugins. Since the hiccups had been coming daily… it seems likely that the plugins might have been the issue. Well, I’m getting bombarded with spam… several hundred per day. It’s annoying and needlessly time consuming (like our local Comintern representative). So, I’m going to reactivate the spam filter. If you notice anything goofy – in particular, if the blog shuts you out from commenting, by demanding that you be logged in, or if it simply closes commenting on recent posts – let me know.
