Well, there's spam egg sausage and spam, that's not got much spam in it

Each day for the last three years, I’ve been spending a minute ‘clearing out the trash’ by deleting spam comments that get past my Akismet spam filter. The filter catches about a thousand a day, but a handful typically get past it.

In an effort to cut down on this, I’ve now shut off comments on old posts after two weeks have elapsed. For regular commenters, if there’s an issue where you’d like to say something after comments have closed, please just email me (andrew.leigh anu.edu.au), and I’ll be happy to open comments back up.
