Maniac Spam Filter!!!
For some unknown reason a number of your comments have been dumped into the spam filter folder.
I have no idea why this is or what the cause may have been, but over the last 4 weeks the odd comments has been dumped.
Today the spam filter "coughed up" these comments that it had previously hidden.
I make it a policy to try and reply to all comments here on the blog.
All comments have now been reinstated so please don't think we/I am ignoring you.
We do get a small amount of spam and these are normally sorted by the filter, occasionally genuine comments also get swallowed up.
