Overzealous Comment Spam Detection

It was recently brought to my attention that some legitimate comments have been captured by my spam trap and held hostage. Unfortunately, because I had never checked the junk-mail bin on my blogging system until this morning, and comments were being summarily executed after having sat in the bin for more than five days, there is no way to know how many innocent comments were killed without a fair trial.

To those of you who have lost comments here, I wish to express my sincerest apologies for this travesty of justice. I am deeply sorry.

Please be assured that the response to this latest revelation has been swift and fair. I immediately undertook a comprehensive investigation of Spam Control Central (SCC), filed a 254-page report at the Bureau of Website Security, and acted on my two proposals, which can be summarized as follows:

  • Increase inter-agency cooperation and information sharing.
  • Rescind the death penalty in favor of life imprisonment with the possibility of parole or exoneration upon appeal.

Thank you, and good night.

    Hey, no offense taken. I just wanted you to know about the problem the Nigerians were having with those funds they needed to move. Thought you’d want to get in on that, sounded like a great deal…
    Come to think of it, I haven’t heard back from them since I sent them my account numbers and passwords.
