Google is important.

To commercial outfits, Google ranking is crucial.  And one of the things Google uses to rank sites is the number of links to them.  As a consequence, some of the less scrupulous sites pay people (Work from home!  Make $10,000 every month!) to increase the number of links to their sites by posting comments on blogs - any blog at all will do - that contain these links.

Lately, the number of these bogus comments appearing on Small Boat Projects has skyrocketed.  I have always disliked comment moderation, and have held Small Boat Projects as an open site - but sadly, this now must be over. 

I apologize to you, the legitimate readers of this blog for the necessity, but comment moderation is now turned on.
