What appeared to be a fabulous new feature of Typepad has instead been,
um, not so helpful. See, when people comment, the way I know about it
is that it appears in my email account. There, I happily read it, and
when I have time and it doesn't seem too dorky, I reply. I used to do
this by going to the blog, and clicking on "leave a comment" or
whatever it exactly says. But lately, there has been an enticing little
note that says "To comment, just reply to this email!" So I have.
It turned out that this was a mistake. It turned out that all those witty, thoughtful, and appropriate comments I made were then speedily sent to my own special spam comment area (which I didn't quite know existed—I blame myself). So anyone I replied to, it never got there.

Yes, I love No Flying in the House too!

I love that book, too!
I love that book, too! (ad nauseum)
will try not to be lazy and to now post all comments through a more
reliable conduit. Or at least to check to see if they appear, for
heaven's sake. I will also try to know what I am doing.
