Comments by anyone who’s previously had one approved here automatically go public (as long as they’re still using the same identifying info as before.) First-time comments get manually approved when I can log on. The days when I go into the office I don’t have access to this blog until evening. That’s all to explain — this morning there are around 7 new comments to the fan writer discussion just approved and WordPress has inserted them according to their timestamp. That is the reason most are not singled out as “recent comments,” including ones by Robert Lichtman, Eric Mayer, Mike Lowrey and Colin Hinz.
And as I am going into the office now (you’re right, Rich Coad, this blog isn’t on Pacific time) it will be about 8 hours before I can resume approving comments. They will get in later.
