First of all, thank you readers for noting the problems with the Politics Blog and bringing them to our attention.
A server upgrade over the weekend caused one week of posts to be wiped out — we hope temporarily. Also, the spam filter went offline, causing large numbers of robot/spam comments to appear under our posts.
IT is working on these problems. I will update you as I get new information. I do hope the fix includes the reappearance of the missing posts.
We apologize. Thanks for your patience.
