Some months ago, I forget how long exactly, I accused Dan of removing comments that he found inconvenient. When he restored comments, I thought that he was marking comments as spam himself so they would be available when people called him on it (which they were doing. Dan said that Blogger was sending them to spam and that he had nothing to do with it. I didn't believe him. At the time, I was going on the best evidence available to me as Blogger did not seem to have a habit of doing that and christians do seem to have a habit of making excuses.
However, today, I see new evidence. It appears that Blogger can delete comments automatically like that (without posting 20 comments in a 5-minute period to get one deletion.) Alex has no reason to come to Dan's defense and probably didn't even know about the accusation. I must therefore accept the new evidence and where it leads.
I apologize. I accused you in error. And for that I am sorry.
