The Canal Shop Blog has now been deleted.

It didn’t work out as expected, too many people trying to post too many inappropriate comments, and continue to do so even though none of their comments got through.

I did try limiting comments to people who registered, but too few wanted to do that just to leave a comment, so it has been shut down.
