I love interacting with readers who leave comments. I hear from writers, history buffs, and fantasy enthusiasts. My tastes and blog posts are eclectic and it's wonderful to hear from everyone who shares those tastes in one way or another. Currently, commenting is unmoderated beyond word verification.
HOWEVER, lately I have been receiving spam comments from one anonymous commenter who types a list of Egypt-related words and then ends with a link to his/her website. These and other such comments are deleted as soon as I see them because they reflect badly on my blog, and they are annoying to my readers and myself. Don't be the person who forces me to review each comment before it's published.
