His Grace’s blog has been under a sustained spam attack since just before Christmas. The number of comments containing dubious hyperlinks runs into the dozens every day, and Disqus appears to be incapable of dealing with the onslaught. Unfortunately, therefore, any comments containing hyperlinks will need to pre-approved. This is not an attack on communicants’ freedom of expression, but the only solution to a tiresome problem. Comments will be surveyed as frequently as possible, but His Grace’s ashes have other demands upon them. Until a better solution is found (or the attack subsides), it would help enormously if hyperlinks were avoided. If you need to refer to a source, please insert the address without http:// , leaving people to cut and paste if they wish to do so. Bless you.
