I have to break my rule of not posting so much to let you know that many comments from regular blogging friends have gone astray.
I was about to empty my Spam and Trash folders earlier, and I was shocked to find 45 genuine comments had been dumped in there by WordPress. I have just had to manually approve and reply to them all. If you left a comment that I did not acknowledge, the chances are it has been trashed and deleted by WordPress, definitely not by me!
Apologies to everyone who kindly left a comment, then must have thought I had completely ignored it. It wasn’t my fault, and seems to be yet another of those random WP glitches that cause me so much annoyance and frustration.
Anyone wondering my my replies have come so late now knows the answer.
My suggestion to you all is to quickly check both Spam and Trash folders.
Comments from your blogging friends may have been dumped there without you knowing.
