are my/your comments stuck in spam?

Standard

ask for helpI have discovered in the last day or two that almost all the comments I have made on other people’s blogs have been stuck in the spam folder, and thus not viewed or put up on the sites I commented upon.

WordPress support have not been very helpful so far, so I am putting out a call to anyone and everyone who has a WordPress site to check your spam folder.  Yes, there is a lot of rubbish in there that deserves to never see the light of day – but please look and see if any of my comments are also stuck there – or your friends comments – due for imminent disposal!

I have checked with some of the sites I follow and who also took the blogging101 course with me, and they have found up to 5 of my comments in their spam folder – I really hope that hasn’t happened to you!  I have also commented on random posts I found through searches, or in the Community Pool, and since no one can read them, I can’t get any replies from anyone, when I ask them if my comments are in the spam folder – catch 22!

However – if you do want to leave a comment on this post – as far as I know, they will all arrive, and I will put them up as soon as I get them!

And check in my spam folder just in case – smile!  My comments are all moderated by me, but that’s because the comments are open to anyone reading my blog – so do let me know if you can shed some light on this strange phenomenon!
