I invite comments from anyone with genuine questions or insights, but I don’t welcome spam comments, so there’s a strong spam filter on the comment field with a very-hard-to-read italic squiggle you’ll have to interpret.  Some of the squiggles are almost impossible to figure out, so if you find a post you want to comment on, but you can’t interpret the squiggle, try going out of the page, then back in.  When you go back in, you should get a new — and hopefully more legible — squiggle.  If you check out the squiggle before you try to write a comment, you’ll be less frustrated.  Thanks for persevering and not supporting spammers!
