Spam policy changes

We’ve tried to keep a reasonable compromise between security and convenience, between automatically rejecting too many comments or approving too much spam. At this it seems we have failed (well, I should say I have, given I made the choices on spam protection). Henceforth we’re deploying a new solution in that regard. If, in the past, your comments were not posted successfully, I apologise, and hope that it won’t happen again in future.

Spam is a pretty difficult problem, and we haven’t found a perfect way to solve it while maintaining the independence of our website and not relying on third parties to hold your personal information and our data. I’m hoping this change will take us to a slightly better local maximum, if not to the promise land.

About modulus

Modulus is an unaffiliated Marxist from South Western EU (Spanish state). He studied computer science and law, and is at present preparing for civil service exams for the Spanish administration. An avid IRC user, he enjoys arguments and will occasionally play devil's advocate. He regards himself as orthodox and is concerned about unscientific attitudes on the left on such things as nuclear energy, biotechnology, and so on. His support for the European Union as a platform to unify the class struggle across the continent has earned him plenty of strong opposition, and doubtless will continue to do so; until, that is, his view is vindicated by history.
