I just want to say “thanks”, to those of you who’d emailed to let me know you’d had some problems commenting on the site. I appreciate you taking the time to give me the heads up, so that I can fix it. These things do happen, and I have asked my tech to look at the problem and I think the problem should be solved now.
I have a suspicion it was one of my crack-addicted anti-spam plugins that was hungry and greedily eating comments and also blocking some real commenters. Eeek. I am very, very sorry for any inconvenience!!!
I know you guys like long comments and so appreciate that it’s a pain in the bum to rewrite and then resubmit (which you amaze me by doing anyway). As I say, the issue with people being stopped from commenting should be over, I think. So comment away as normal.
So you know, if comments do not appear right away, you may just need to wait a second and refresh your page. Comments will either appear there or in my admin queue for moderation, where they will be reviewed the same day (sometimes even regular phrases/key words etc. trip the standard spam filter – and there ain’t a lot I can do about that, sorry. Do not worry too much, the comment will be fished out by me).
Let me know if anything else goes funny when you comment and I can get it ironed out for you. You guys continue to rock, and you amaze me with your dedication to sharing your views within this community. I heart you all.
