Apologies to anyone who got caught in the overprotective spam filter

I came and logged in to The Archist this morning to check for any new comments and was very surprised by what I saw. Normally I would check the comments by just looking at the post for the comment link, today after logging in I saw a much higher number of comments than I knew of. Turns out I had quite a few in the spam filter.

Looking through those comments, I found several comments which appear to be real marked as spam. I’m not sure how they got marked, they all seemed perfectly normal and on-topic to me. Marking them as Not Spam will hopefully train the filter better. Until then, I’ll have to make sure I check these things more in-depth from now on.

That all said, if your comment was caught in the filter, I apologize for not releasing them sooner. I’ll certainly be checking things here more to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
