In the never-ending battle against that scourge with the meat-product name, we've installed some new software here at the TW blog. Using a combination of technical hijinks and serious prestidigitation, the rogues who attempt to use the comments section for their nefarious commercial purposes -- unrelated to our own commercial purposes, nefarious or otherwise -- have heretofore been isolated from the general population. With great success.
Henceforth, thanks to the new weapon in our arsenal (a plugin called Bad Behavior), the vile creatures will be stopped before they even reach our doorstep. As with any new software, there may be kinks to work out. If you find your access to this fine blog limited for reasons beyond your knowledge, you might have been mis-identified as a vile creature. With notice, we will be happy to rectify that situation.
