Update: My tech guy installed a new spam filter Tuesday night because they old one was interfering with a plug-in that was necessary to fix some load issues on the site. The short-term consequence has been an inordinate number of legitimate comments and trackbacks getting caught in the WordPress moderation queue. We’re looking into it. In the meantime, just send the trackback once and I’ll rescue them periodically. Sorry for the inconvenience.
