Sometime around 10 this morning, my comments on other people’s blogs started to not post. When I hit reply, the comment would disappear – leading me to believe that they were going into the recipients’ spam box. Thanks to Jodi of A Brash Attitude, who verified for me that my comments were indeed going into her spam box. It’s also been verified on a few other blogs that for some mysterious reason, my comments are being flagged as spam! I’m no spammer, I’m Stashy! 😛
So, I’m asking for your help. On your blog, please follow these steps:
1) Go to your WP Admin Dashboard, it is located here:
(replace “yourblogname” with your blog’s name! 😉 )
Or you can click through from the WordPress “My Site” (where it shows your stats), scroll all the way to the bottom:
It will open in a new tab / window.
2) Select “Comments” from the left side panel:
3) Click on “Spam” along the top, and if you find a comment from me, please click “Not Spam”:
4) Once a comment is labelled as “Not Spam”, it will be moved over to the “Pending” box. Now you need to release it by approving it:
You should really be checking your Spam box regularly – I’ve found the odd comments from real bloggers in there! It’s so annoying that WordPress doesn’t alert you of spams, similar to how they alert you of Pending comments.
Thank you! I really appreciate it. I’ve left probably 20 comments today that all seemed to have disappeared! 😦 What’s annoying is that unless my comments get removed from your Spam box, I can’t leave new comments on your blog because my username is flagged as spam! Please free my comments!
