For the love of Spam

Once again WordPress has decided that I am spam, I read on another person’s blog it might have something to do with commenting on 10 different blogs in one day. I usually do that on a Tuesday, but it lead me to think how often do you check your spam file?

I check it once a day, but at least once a week I get someone that is not spam appearing in it.

And just incase you are not sure how to check. If you go to WP Admin, it will open into the dashboard and it will say there how many messages you have in your spam. In the at a glance bit.

  1. Sometimes commenting the blogs with some links (mostly award links) falls into the spam folder. I have noticed it.

  2. This is happening A LOT to people lately. I guess, like you we all need to check the box daily. I did last week and found a bunch of missed comments. It made me feel bad that the comments were there and I dind’t know it.

    I rarely check my spam folder but this has been happening a lot to me lately and I feel bad when other’s comments go to spam and it looks like I’m ignoring them! I’m trying to make a habit of checking more often

    Darling you are anything but spam!! WordPress needs to sort this out asap and until then, the spam folder will be checked every time I log on! I thought at first maybe it was my settings but no, settings would make your comments go into the queue to be approved, not the spam (err I think so anyway…… Please someone tell me if I misunderstood lol). Big love xxxx

    Reblogged this on All In A Dad's Work and commented:
    A reminder to check your spam folder. You might have something there WP thinks you don’t want.

    I check spam any time I see there are comments in it. Most of the time, that’s what it is.
