When I started this site I had no idea that WordPress sites were such a target of spam. All bot driven, the spam is just a waste of space and time. It hurts interested commenters.
I am happy to report that I have gotten the site updated and have implemented a sophisticated spam blacker. Comments are now possible from anyone. They will be available immediately, unless you are a spammer
Possibly you might get blocked inadvertently. I apologize in advance. If this happens please email me at sholland at napervillegi dot com. There may be some additional adjustments I need to make.
