META: Comment problems

Apparently something is going amiss and I am not getting email notification when someone posts a comment. Which means if you've posted anything for me today (maybe even late yesterday), I probably haven't seen it. I'll try and manually go through the last few posts to see if anything major's come up. The "Contact us" link and form are still working, though, so if it's urgent you can use that. Sorry for the problems, I can't tell what's up.

    Sound a bit like Conficker & variants running around. As you know, they mess with DNS.

    I think voodoo is the more logical explanation.

    I think Dr.Doom is the most logical explanation.

    As it turns out, the most likely — and correct — explanation was that I am an idiot. Starting on the 25th, GMail started marking all the HeroMachine blog mail as Spam. All I had to do was go look there and unspam it. I should have checked that as one of the first things but nooooooo, I had to call tech support.

    Oh well, at least I am getting it all now AND seeing it.

    Well, shoot, Jeffrey, I could’ve told you that a long time ago.

    …uh, that it was the spam filter. Yeah, *ahem*, that it was the spam filter.
