Spam check, please

OK, I was in a rage yesterday. I knew I was, but couldn’t get past it. Sorry if I came across like some kid throwing a tantrum at the supermarket, but I was never allowed to do that when I was younger.

Besides, there were no supermarkets back then…

One of several things I was raging about, was the inexplicable decision by WordPress to put my comments into the Spam folders of so many bloggers. As always, this was random, as some bloggers continued to receive all my comments, whilst others had to look for them in Spam. This kind of thing happens so often, I really couldn’t be bothered to go through the rigmarole of contacting the Help Forum. As expected, some of my great blogging friends found those comments in their Spam folders, and approved them.

But it hasn’t gone away. Since I logged on this morning, at least six comments haven’t appeared on other blogs, though many have. If you have posted something, and would normally expect to get a reply from me, then please check your Spam folders when you have time. If you have recently followed my blog, and have yet to receive a ‘Thank You’, then please do the same. Meanwhile, I promise to calm down.

Well, just a little bit.

    1. I saw my first ‘real’ supermarket after I left school. It was like a temple of consumerism to me at the time, even though it was just the size of two normal shops.. These days, they are the size of football stadiums. I wonder how we ever coped when we just had ‘shops’. 🙂
      Best wishes, Pete.

  1. I just, checked my spam, and you are fine. One blogger had two comments in there, so it was good that I checked it. The rest was really spam. Really! I won’t even go there… Best to you, Pete.

  2. Hasn’t it been resolved yet? I get a spam or two now and then but those are comments that have link to the commenters’ blogs some are followers who are just starting. WordPress marks them as spam.

  3. This happened to me about a year ago and was so infuriating. I didn’t realise what was happening until you reported your headaches on this Issue. My issue seems to have self-corrected. now, but I am ever alert.

    1. Thanks, Peggy. This must be at least the fifth time this has happened to me, and I have never had an explanation from WP, despite asking many times. Sometimes, the frustrations boils over, and I really lose it. Yesterday was one of those days.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  4. This same thing happens on my regular email too. All of a sudden, out the blue, Spam will end up in the In-box while real messages slipped into Spam. It seems to go away on it’s own after a day or two and switching everything back where it belongs.

      1. After my great speech of telling you to hand in there – it took me over 2 hours to put together my post today. It was one battle after another getting things where I wanted them!! Serves me right, I guess. haha

      1. Pete, I told you that my great frustration is that you have to be a wordpress member to comment on posts…really frustrating to me, as I get hundreds of comments and likes to some stories, but only on Facebook, NOT on wordpress – while i get the “views”, it is weird to have 500 views and NO comments, but on Facebook I have 500 likes…oh well!
