So for the last while I've been wondering why nobody comments on anything here anymore...and then Roger emails me to say, "Hey, I'm leaving comments and they never clear moderation, so are you getting the notifications emailed to you?"
Guess what! I have NOT been receiving notifications of comments, so I had a pile in my "Awaiting Moderation" queue. I've just released them all (save one that was spam), and I'll try to remember to check that on a regular basis now. For anyone who was seeking to engage conversation, my apologies!
