I have nothing to do with the recent kerfuffle about civility and comment policies that has been meandering through science blogs, but a large quantity of posts on the subject on a largeish number of blogs has, I admit, gotten me thinking about my own comment policies. Since I often get queries,…

Do the sequestered comments have links in them? I've found at some blogs, including 3 or so links was enough to ensure quarantine.

I guess you've been away, because I can still comment on your blog, unlike the other ScienceBlogs.
