On April 10, I explained, as clearly as I could, that I would not be publishing comments until Ascension Day. My blog would be a comment-free blog.
I return to my computer today to find awaiting me a string of comments, getting ever more abusive, from somebody who clearly did not read that announcement, and feels that I was rudely refusing to answer him. As I made clear on April 10, I did not read his comments until now ... and have now deleted them.
This blog is now again open to comments.
