Comment overflow (temporarily) halted

After sorting through the overwhelming mass of spam comments I’ve been getting, I figured out that most of them were attached to one of two or three old posts — presumably posts with keywords or PageRank that the spammers liked. It didn’t look like closing comments on those was going to be a huge issue, so I did, and the comment level is back down to normal and I’m able to find and approve new legitimate commenters. I’ll probably keep doing that periodically to keep the volume level down, at least until I change hosts/upgrade WordPress and can install Akismet or some other actual effective spam-catcher.

So, sorry if I threw any of your comments away; try again if you were having issues and I should be able to approve you.
