The jury is still out on this.
We have a ton of spam and some putrid attempts by wingnuts and other perverts attempting to clog up the inbox, so sifting through to genuine comments is a time consuming ordeal which is why we ceased publishing comments several years ago.
However, we decided to post a few of the positive comments we have received now to see what the response will be.
I am one of your great fans. - Sonja Olegsdottir, Malmo, Sverige (Sweden)Now before the trolls begin let us just say that these are comments we have received and the names of the authors of those comments - or at least the names those commenting gave.

I don't know what to say. This blog is fantastic. That's not really a really huge statement, but its all I could come up with after reading this. You know so much about this subject. So much so that you made me want to learn more about it. Your blog is my stepping stone, my friend. Thanks for the heads up on this subject. on Peering Into the Heart of a Supernova.- Zudzy Bhano, Harare, Zimbabwe
As to the names' authenticity we can only take them at their word because most people who post positive comments actually are proud to use their real names ... unlike the trolls who spew negativity and bile under false names like cowards.
Also before asking, we will never post negative comments: Critical comments made in a positive or neutral manner, yes, negative, no.
Derogatory, slanderous and libelous comments are forwarded to the authorities and quite a few wingnut/pervert trolls have discovered this, much to their dismay.
Oh, and by the way ...
We begin our annual Xmas Tree countdown in two days.
