Wow, I see a flurry of comments, I guess I was out.  Usually the system asks me to approve the comments (there's an unbelievable amount of spam), but you can avoid that by creating an account.  If you have an account (click Join in the top-right), then it seems to auto-approve your comments :)  (Of course then I still have to remember to check for and read them).

A large part of the delay is that I was just ignoring everyone since I was busy having a wonderful time on a sailboat around Tortola :)
