Thank you all for your support during my time of need. Akismet has stopped marking my comments as spam as of late July 11th!
We interrupt our regular programming to bring you the following
Public Service Announcement:
My Comments on WordPress Blogs are being marked as SPAM! They are NOT!
Apparently, Akismet, the company that does the spam filtering on many WordPress blogs, has decided that my comments are spam. Yes, really. I know this because a) when I try to comment on someone’s WP blog with my WP profile, the comment disappears without a trace, and b) some people have told me that they found my comments in their spam inboxes.
UPDATE: Today (July 11), for the first time since I started this blog, I found TWO perfectly legitimate comments from readers in MY spam inbox!
Watch out people… Aksimet is acting up. Don’t post comments on blogs and close the page before you check to see if it shows up, or shows as “awaiting moderation.” If you don’t see either of these, that’s a sign that YOUR comment has been marked as spam!
I’m trying to get this fixed, but in the meanwhile, I would appreciate your taking a look in your spam inboxes to see if there are any of my comments there. If so, it would be nice if you could please mark them as not spam and approve them (or delete them, as you wish).
Many thanks in advance.
We now return you to your regular programming!
