Even though C64Takeaway.com has a pretty nifty anti-spam plugin installed, roughly 150 unwanted messages managed to sneak into the moderation queue over the past 30 days, and even more before that. So in order to save time on maintaining this site, comments on all past announcements have been disabled, and new posts (like this one) will now have comments disabled automatically after six months.
While it initially annoyed me no end that I have to limit your option to leave feedback via the site, I have also realised that the change will have little impact on real-life usage, since the vast majority of comments on older posts are from people asking when a new episode will be out. 😀 – Very rarely (if at all) has anyone left comments on an older post after stumbling upon this place via a search-engine or referral link somewhere.
On the plus side, this change leaves more time and mental energy to spend on something I’m trying to resurrect this winter. If all goes well it should pop up on your radar sometime before the holidays.
