I haven’t figured out why my comments go to people’s spam. I try to write nice comments, but maybe I write too many words. Maybe my grammar’s bad, and WP thinks I’m not a real human. Possibly WP thinks I’m trying to sell something that is not appropriate. For whatever reason I’m in the trash more often than not. For that I apologize, and hope that you will take the time to fish me out. I have found that I’m not getting as many comments, and I truly miss you leaving behind your thoughts.
I check my spam each day, and lo and behold – normal spam. “Lovely site man, I am appreciating your words, and hope to make examples of it when you visit my site, you will see it.” Nothing from you. If anyone knows how to solve this problem, I’d love to know it. I found that it even happens when I go directly to your site, sign in, and the posting comment sign comes on, and then poof, my post is gone. Probably out spamming.
Today on October 2, I found this in an article about the Admin Bar.
The gist of this is that when you are on someone else’s blog, and you hover the mouse over their name, the above menu pops up. In the gray section is another line that states, “report as spam”. If you do that accidentally or on purpose, it reports that site as spam to WP. I’m not sure how they follow-up with it. I also am not sure what you can do to unreport that person as a non-spammer.
I followed two new sites tonight, and clicked “like”. They followed me back. I tried to leave comments on both of their sites, and it never appeared. It didn’t leave a message, “Your comment is awaiting moderation, either.” I wonder if it will show up? I’ll keep an eye out for it. I’m on a quest!
So that’s my latest update on Spamming. Still learning, still experimenting. 🙂
