I’ve received a couple of emails saying people have been having problems with comments on this site. I’ve replied to them but as a message to others, if your comments don’t work, feel free to email me and I will try my best to reply.
I’ve tried to change the messaging system a bit and if the issue persists I’ll consider changing to a third party comment system. At some point, I might change web hosts as well but it’s not worth it unless I can break even with website costs.
A few months ago I had a problematic user. I don’t want drama on my site and so I removed the comments. He started using VPNs and became quite threatening by trying to post personal information. Amongst other things, he said he’d filed a false police report to get me permanently banned from the US. I contacted various US government agencies about this.
As a response to his explosive verbal diarrhoea, I made it more difficult to be spammed, but unfortunately this impacts innocent, non spamming, users.
