Hey, everyone! Seems more and more of my friends here are having trouble getting their comments onto posts because they get slammed into SPAM folders on WP. In my experience, this is happening to folks who’ve been on the blogs in question many times and made many comments in the past, yet still this sometimes does happen.
Since much of the content of my SPAM folder is pretty nasty, I’d not been looking into it, but just emptying it. Now I look to see if there’s a friend or two waiting to be rescued. I recommend you do this as well. There’s no clear pattern to this as one active blog buddy suddenly found all her comments going there, while another just had one or two land there and most of hers still posted.
Once you click “not SPAM” to rescue your blog buddies, you may find as I did that they wind up awaiting approval rather than posting regardless of your specific blog settings . . .
I’m hearing at the WP water cooler that this is an ongoing challenge, though my experience in this battle is limited. Just an FYI so y’all may be aware of it and not miss out on anything in your blog experience.
