A couple of notes from our server move over the weekend. First, after the initial move, comments were very slow. We implemented some optimizations to address this, including changing some of our comment spam controls.
We’re now using a different anti-spam tool: Akismet. It’s a pretty tough screen. If you find your comments are going into the junk bucket, drop an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll dig them out. This will also alert us so we can figure out if we need to do some tuning.
