Sunday evening: Today I finally righted the ship and posted more than two dozen "Featured Comments" on the last six posts going all the way back to the "Know Thyself" post.
My workflow for comment moderation is fairly rigid and requires that I stay very organized with windows, flagging procedures, and sequencing. On those occasions when it gets away from me, it can be a real bear to sort everything out again. As I said this morning, this is probably the worst it's ever gotten!
My apologies not only to the authors of the late "Featured Comments" but of course to all readers! I hope you'll take some time to catch up with the Featured Comments on the posts you were interested in.
Some days I'd fire the assistant if only he wasn't me.
