Hi all, apologies to anyone this effects but due to an ongoing problem with spam, I’ve had to block unregistered users commenting until I can resolve the situation. As it stands, my spam filter currently reads; 16,657 spams caught, but this doesn’t tell the whole story and a lot more is being missed.

I’m planning to install a CAPTCHa feature – one of those random code generator things you have to copy (applies to unregistered users only) – that should curb the problem, but until I can get this in place, you’ll have to register to make comments. Registration is of course entirely free and takes literally a minute, so it shouldn’t inconvenience anyone too much.
