I am so sorry that so many of your comments are being held for approval. Please don’t think you’ve done anything wrong if you’re a long time reader and are suddenly having your comments held.
Comments are held when:
- It’s a first time comment – that helps cut down on the spam.
- If there’s a link – this helps cut down on porn.
- If there’s a bad word and I’ve set the definitions as to “bad” and I don’t think I’ve ever had a real comment held because of a bad word.
- Vince’s employer is mentioned by name. We like having a set income! 🙂
At first I thought maybe a couple of you had changed internet providers and that flags you as a new reader when you first comment from a new ISP but . . either about half of you have new internet providers or WordPress has changed something.
So, please don’t feel slighted if your comments are held. I’ll get them all approved as soon as I see they’re being held. And if your comments are held for longer than you think they should be, please contact me. A while back, I accidentally hit “Spam” instead of “Approve” for a very long time reader and from that day forward, her comments were held for moderation. I could not figure it out and finally went back for several months and saw where I had hit the wrong button. You know how often I hit the wrong button . . you see my typos! Just let me know if your comments are being held too long or, not showing up at all.
Thanks and I’m sorry for the inconvenience but I didn’t do it! (And worse, I don’t have a clue how to stop it from happening!)
