[tech] Email housekeeping note

Over the past two weeks, my spam load has gone up approximately 1000%. As a result, I've had to tighten my mail filters considerably simply in order to preserve my own sanity. Where I used to scan my spam trap for legitimate messages from people I don't normally correspond with, I simply cannot do so any more.

This means that if you are not a regular correspondent of mine and try to reach me by email, there's a fairly good chance I won't be aware of it. Please try alternate channels such as Facebook, blog comments or messages via mutual friends.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
