1) I’ve been getting unusual shitloads of comment spam in the last few days — and marking it all as spam — which means there’s a good chance that the pendulum will swing fairly soon, and good comments will start getting caught in the spam filter. I love that this filter is a very quick learner, but every time I report a bunch of spam it hasn’t caught, it overcompensates with false positives for a few days. So if your comments don’t show up, don’t panic. I’m not deleting you, and the problem will fix itself soon.
2) I have a painful wisdom tooth right now and am coming to terms with the fact that I might actually have to have it yanked. (It’s not infected — it just moved and is creating loads of pressure, a la having braces tightened.) This has happened before and righted itself within a few days, but it’s never been quite this brutal, so I might have to stop being a big baby and just get it taken out. Which will probably be on short notice, because only severe pain will be enough to make me stop being a big baby about the thought of extraction. So if I disappear for a bit, that’s probably why.
As you were.
