New security rules and the cobbler’s children

The server where Advisorbits is hosted was recently rebuilt, which is to say, it got a new operating system and hard drives. It has served me well for years. But like everything else, time changes the network environment. When I first deployed the server, there was little SPAM. And in my niavete’ I was hoping not to have to deal with mail services… which any hosting provider can tell you is part of the package. I barely knew what a blog was (though not by that name) and certainly had never dreamed of comment SPAM.
Those days are gone.

Its caused some changes around here, so I wanted to let you know. If you have difficulty posting comments, please drop me an email to let me know. It would be good if you can copy the comment and let me know what time you tried so I can track down why it fails.
