… this might be a reason. We’ve set up Snarkmarket so comments on posts older than 5 days ago automatically head to moderation before they’re published. This has cut waaaay back on the amount of spam that’s published (unpublishing spam after it already goes through is a pain, requiring copious rebuilding of templates). I just junked about 500 messages on old posts, 99.5% of which were spam. Four of those comments, however, were legit, and I’m calling ’em out here, ’cause Recent Holla won’t get ’em.
