I owe a lot of you readers an apology of sorts. You've probably noticed that over the last few weeks, Vinography has been generating a lot of unwanted e-mail in your inbox. Those of you who have used the "subscribe to replies" feature of my blog have borne witness to the fact that I am under an attack of SPAM comments the likes of which I have never seen in 10 years of writing this blog. I'm getting about 300 comments per day, despite having a very aggressive filter for this sort of thing.
In order to avoid your inboxes being filled with useless drivel I have deleted ALL of the subscriptions to comments that exist in my system. I'm sorry if you were still enjoying an occasional reminder that people had responded to stories you were interested in, but it's just not worth it to me to force you to delete all these nonsense e-mails that are coming through.
If there are particular articles you wanted to continue to receive notifications about, you are free to sign up again, though you may want to wait until I find a solution to this commenting nightmare.
Thanks for your patience and understanding, and I'm sorry about all that crap in your inbox.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
