Comments not back at all, actually.

Oops. Not sure what’s going on there. Will try to fix it at some point.

[Update: OK, they were back, and now they’re off again, since I’m getting more than a comment a minute. That seems like quite a lot, especially when they’re all junk. Cue Akismet and/or captcha-type plugins. Back soon…]

[update 2: Right. MT-Akismet plugin installed, and we’ll see how that fares overnight. My assumption here is that what was causing the server load was page rebuilds rather than lookups (which seems to have been suggested by Dreamhost support, though they’re a bit vague), but if that’s not the case then my comments may die again. We’ll see. Trackback is still disabled, for now.]

  1. OK, so I lied. Comments are working again. We’ll see how long they last this time before the bastard spammers take them down — I may have to move to Akismet or some sort of Captcha plugin…
