Comments on this Blog

I was getting discouraged about writing this rant because it had been so long since anyone bothered to improve it by commenting.

Now I just discovered the Google has installed a new Spam filter that I have no control over. See this.

"To make it easier for you to manage your comments, we’ve created a new Comments tab for you to access them. Here, you can manage published comments, comments that have been flagged as spam and comments awaiting moderation if you have turned on Comment Moderation.
Users with Comment Moderation turned on will continue to see comments that need moderation and have not been flagged as spam in Comments | Awaiting Moderation. Users without Comment Moderation will not see any comments in Comments | Awaiting Moderation.

Spam Inbox

Blogger now filters comments that are likely spam comments to a Spam Inbox, much like the spam folder in your email. When someone leaves a comment on your blog, it will be reviewed against our spam detector, and comments that are identified as possible spam will be sent to your blog’s Spam Inbox, found at Comments | Spam.
You can help improve our ability to automatically detect spam comments by checking your Spam Inbox and deleting spam comments and marking real comments that may have been flagged as spam as Not Spam.
We are always seeking feedback on how to improve this feature, so please share your feedback with us by clicking on the Report Spam Filtering Issues.
If you have questions about what constitutes spam on Blogger, please review our Content Policies."

I just now found out how to access the contents of this Spam Filter and there were lots of intelligent comments. But they were all classified as Spam, but not a single one of the comments was in any way offensive.
So, two things; 1) I apologize to anyone who posted a comment expecting a reply, and 2) Does anybody know how to shut off this crappy Spam filter??
