Nope. I get notifications on subscribed threads, messages and travel help requests, but nothing on new comments posted to the blog.

Greg, this is my mistake, sorry about that. I just uploaded the fix and left a comment for you. Let me know if you do/don't get it. It's part of a set of changes to allow non logged in users to comment on blog entries, and being tested parallel to the current system right now to see how much spam it does/doesn't attract. If you want to open up your blog, let me know and I can add it as one of the test blogs.

Apologies again, hope you can forgive me

Yup, that one I did get. Thanks Sam. No need to apologise.

What I'm most afraid of with this test is that it won't attract spammers at all yet precisely because it is a limited test. And then a couple of months after you've opened it up generally, a spammer will go through the trouble to write some scripts and... (Might stave that off longer by making it opt-in, rather than the default for all 13k+ blogs, but I still fear there'll be a threshold of enough blogs using this that it becomes worthwhile for spammers to target it specifically. *hopes he's wrong*)

That would have been me, that last post. This thread now contains posts by two of our alter ego's; is it obvious we needed to log in under a different username to see if the fix worked? :)
