comment glitch fixed
When I awakened, I found no spam comments. That was a clear indication things were broken -- normally I wake up to find 8-20 that have made it thru the spam filter. (Spammers must have day jobs: most of the spam comments come at night, or over weekends -- the purpose is to raise the Google rankings of those who hire them). I fixed the problem. In the neverending war of blogs vs. spammers, sometimes they'll insert links designed to screw up your blog if you blacklist them, a count countermeasure as it were. If you don't spot them (and it's easy to miss when you have 20 spam comments to deal with and each has several links), things get messed up.
