Sorry about the spam here on Collision Detection

The spambots have really been raging out of control here, I’m afraid. It used to be that I’d get one or two spambot postings a day, but now gangs are tossing up dozens of postings in each item — about 100 comments every 15 minutes, actually.

I’m in the process of installing spam filters, and will have them up and running by the weekend. The filters will also retroactively erase all the existing spam.

So, things will continue to get worse around here for a couple of days, after which they’ll get much better.

In the meantime, my apologies for the massive amount of spam around here!
