i just discovered, after over 7 years of blogging, that there is a spam section for wayward comments to go. who knew? not me! fortunately a friend mentioned it to me. so i went to check it out. since i had NEVER even checked it before there were oh…probably 6 or 7 THOUSAND comments in there. so i deleted them all without even checking. no time! but since then i have been checking and here’s what i found:
of course while i was laughing my head off, i was also coming across lots of rattling fantastic comments from YOU that had been marked as spam. so this is all just to say that if you’ve ever left something and wondered where it was…it was in my spam drawer unbeknownst to me! and to think i’m an overly skilled blogger who let this issue float on by. i’m trying to remember to check it regularly now. as a website possessor i really owe it to my efforts. don’t i? today i went after a week and found about a dozen more comments from real live readers so i fished them out and published them. oyvey!
oh…and…yes i know all about comment moderation and spam proof super codes that must be deciphered before leaving a comment. not interested.
