Hi, Justin...
Why not just post your stats? Or is that where the transparency train stops?

My comments keep getting rejected as inappropriate or spam, but I say they aren't. The latest was a correction of the name of the historian Alexander Fraser Tyler to Tytler. I am a paying subscriber so please give this some consideration.

There are multiple reasons comments might be automatically snagged by the filters. If your ISP cycles your IP address, you might end up with one that somebody has used for spamming before. If you try to put in an html address anywhere in the comment, that'll be rejected. The same goes for a variety of keywords (mainly swears).
