Many thanks to Mark from Akismet who just notified me that I have been released from Akismet Hell.  Look for my extremely pithy comments coming soon to a blog near you.

Note to Akismet: One way to avoid this “false positive” issue might be to put first time commenters in a sandbox and notify them that they are one comment away from being considered spam.

    Could have been as simple as one blogger clicking the wrong button when approving comments.

    it can’t be that easy Stever or else a single blogger would have tremendous power over all of his commenters.

    I spent all day Sunday learning about how carburetors work and adjusting the fuel delivery jets in mine.

    The interweb is amazing for learning a new skill 🙂

    There I was in front of my computer, hands black with grease, stinking like gasoline and a fully dismantled set of carbs on my desk while I was reading web pages about carburetor theory. fun
