I was trying to comment on a blogging friend’s post today who is having a serious problem with his son, and I noticed my comments were disappearing. This reminded me of other bloggers who told me they found my comments in their spam filters in the last few weeks. So I contacted WordPress and was informed that yes, some of my comments on people’s blog posts were going to spam and they see this shouldn’t be happening, but there is nothing they can do about it. So, some of my comments may be in your spam filter because I like to read and comment on your blogs, apparently too much. If you want to read my comments to you, you must go to your spam filter and remove me from spam.
Here is what WordPress said to me:
“Thank you for your patience. I can see there the comments are in the spam filter. I cannot make any changes to these comments, only the site owner can. When comments are detected by our spam filter they are flagged and require approval from the site owner. This can happen for many reasons including making several comments within just a few minutes of time.
If you are having trouble submitting a comment on a site the best way to resolve it is to contact the site owner rather than make several more comments on the site. The site owner can approve your comment. Further comments when you are being blocked can’t resolve the issue.”
“I may have a solution for you to help resolve this, without the site owner.
Can you let Akismet support to prevent your comments from being flagged as spam? You will see the option in the second bullet here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/unwanted-comments/
I hope that they can make your account as good. Your comments certainly do not seem suspicious, but we know they are hitting the spam filter anyways.”
I have contacted Askimet, but this may not work, so please un-spam me if you want to read my comments on your posts.
Oh spam I am,
I do not like the spam I am!
I do not like them, Sam-I-Am.
I do not like green eggs and spam.
Would you like them here or there?
I would not like them here or there.
I would not like them anywhere.
I do not like green eggs and spam.
I do not like this Spamalot!
So, it’s cheers to you from spam I am~
Good News Update: Rachel M, a fellow blogger, and WordPress/Askimet engineer has fixed my spam problem. Thank you Rachel and WordPress/Askimet! To see Rachel’s blog click on: https://rachel.blog/about/
266 thoughts on “My Comments on Your Posts May Be in Your Spam Filter!”
I’ve made it a habit now to check my spam folder every few days – I was one who lost a lot of comments to the ether (otherwise called the spam folder) for no good reason!
It is sad, because you think your communication was received, and it wasn’t and I make lots of comments…..
Yes, me too. I was shocked when it just disappeared, and I ended up at the top of the post, not at the point where I commented. And there must have been some I missed …
WordPress is funky right now.
Yes indeed! I made tons of comments as I caught up with blogs after returning from vacation and this is the sin for which I am being punished!
Oh Cindy it’s so frustrating. It’s haoorned to me three times ! I had to email askimet and they fixed it each time.
It is great to know they fixed it. I hope they will with me too. Thanks for letting me know!
You can get their email on line I think it’s just askimet.com.
I did report it to them, so hopefully they will do something….
Good they wee very attentive to the issue for me.
I have not received any comments and likes. There are no comments in the spam folder. Just wanted to let you know.
Well I went to your blog to see what’s what and I am unfollowed from you. I guess this is another problem! I followed you, again!
Just checked my Spam and Trash Folders and thankfully you were not there. I did find one of your comments under Pending and I approved it.
Oh good, Pending means I am in limbo, forever waiting for your approval! <3 😉
Now I will check my Photography Blog.
Okay I just checked my Photography Blog folders and you didn’t get trapped in Limbo. I did find some weird comments in other languages without Gravatars. Those looked suspicious I permanently deleted them.
Can you give me the link to your photography blog? I want to make sure I am following…..
Sure. My Photography Blog Roaming Urban Gypsy.
I also wrote a Blog post dedicated to our Spam troubles. Figured I would interject some humor into the situation.
I just commented on your most recent post and it went to moderation!
1 800 Approved!
Good! Have a great rest of your weekend~
Thanks. You too.
This comment was in my spam! Something weird is going on.
Gremlins. Looks like we must keep checking our folders. This is ridiculous. Ugh!
You’re not in my spam, Cindy. I check it every day.
Oh good! You are smart to do so. I will do this too now.
I like to keep check on it Cindy.
This comment was in my spam!
Oh dear Cindy, I guess it pays to check.
Oh, Cindy, I just deleted my spam of 61 without reading it through because I am sick–and the next email is from you, saying you are in my spam.I wondered why I can never find you to reply when you send me a comment on a post unless I come to your site. I’ll pay more attention now. Thanks.
I will leave a comment on your most recent post now. Wait a few minutes and then you can go and approve it. Thank you Micki <3
I wouldnt let you disappear so easily Cindy😁👀
Ahhh, hugs to you <3
Unbelievable! First they can’t stop the spammers from taking over and now they’re throwing fellow bloggers into spam because you’re commenting on others blogs??? I don’t know what the “happiness engineers” are doing, but they’re not making anyone happy. So sorry this is happening to you! <3
I guess I commented too much! Laughing…..I got off the boat and I was so happy to be back in contact and I started making lots of comments whilst catching up on blog posts. This was my sin. Forgive me Askimet for I have sinned not……. <3
LOL delivered with a “smile” waves hello.. sends hugs
Hugs back to you sweet friend <3
Blogging can be so frustrating when there is trouble with WP. Sending love and hugs to ease your frustration.
I have learned to flow with it a bit, but so appreciate the <3 and sending hugs back 2U <3
Everything – evolutionary speaking – gets improved until it hits extinction. Good things are constantly getting “fixed”. Glad it’s getting sorted out though – and welcome home!
Thank you. It is great to be home. I am grateful to WP for blocking spam, just not so grateful to actually BE spam! 😉
I didn’t find any from you there, Cindy, BUT, I did find SEVERAL others that shouldn’t have been there. Thanks for the heads up – I’ll have to be more diligent! *Adds check wordpress spam folder to really long to-do list!* 😀
Exactly! I need to be diligent about this as well…..
That’s not good, but now I’ve got that spam song in my head. Hope they fix this for you.
Laughing…..I have Dr. Suess playing in my head…..I do not like Green Eggs and Spam! I do not like them Spam I am!
Hi Cindy, sorry to hear you are having problems with the comments you give. It takes time to leave a thoughtful comment that hopefully will add value to a post, so it is annoying when they are not shown for one reason or another. I am my own spam filter and read every comment before pressing the publish button, rather than leave it for some automatic spam filter to decide the merit of a reader’s comments.
That is smart of you. I do appreciate WP removing spam and I get lots of it, but now I need to be alert that buried in the spam may be legitimate blogger’s comments and that is distressing, especially since wordpress can’t do anything about it. Hopefully Askimet will, but I will have to wait and see.
Hope it all gets fixed soon.
Me too! Thank you <3
Hi Cindy, I cannot follow you on your site, I do get your email posts but can’t reply via the email, I have to go to Word Press and reply there, sounds like your problem may be coming from your settings. Also go into your Word Press site and check the settings on who you follow, good luck, I am still following you, even if I can’t follow you, if you can understand that.
Oh dear! This sounds like another problem. I get notification of comments via email, but respond via wordpress. If you can’t follow me, I need to notify wordpress. I am going to your site now and will check what I can. Thank you for telling me.
If you get an answer let me know Cindy, because that is exactly my problem, I can’t respond by email notifications and when I enter my email address it always comes up as unsuccessful.
I will let you know if I find out anything~
I try to remember to check my SPAM folder every 2 weeks. You never know who ends up in it!
You’re clear this week… but next week?
I know I have commented on your blog recently so my comments should be there……
I checked, you are not in my SPAM. Comments have been coming through, as far as I know. Will check every day for awhile, just in case!
Thank you ma’ deah <3
I checked. None of your posts have gone to spam. 🙂
I will test it now and make a comment so you can see if it ends up in spam….
I could not tell if I was following you from your site. My comment had to be made through email, not wordpress. Is this normal?
I used to like Spam, it was a major source of my protein (and fat) when I grew up during WW II. But, then it went digital.
Cracking up…..I liked it too, as a kid, fried~
You and King Arthur now have something in common: Spamelot.
I wish I thought to include this!
I just added it, thanks to you <3
Sorry to hear about this Cindy. I seldom receive lovely comments that go to my spam folder. Most of the time, spam comments are just that…spam and I just delete them.
Good! I hope it stays that way!
I just left you a comment and it went to moderation…..
Got this one 🙂
Good! Thank you~
hi dear cindy, how could that happen to you especially… haven’t been around to much but I want you to know that I think of you… promise.. I am going to put your link on my blog to follow you at sherrisofpalmsprings.. hugs dear friend
Sweet friend. Hugs & blessings and be well Sherri <3 🕯️
I always check my spam folder now every few days Cindy but take heart in the fact as you are not alone and often in some very illustrious company in my spam folder… Love your take on it and the fact you can laugh about it!
Laughing! I do tend to hang with a motley crowd……. 😉
>>> “… but there is nothing they can do about it.”
Translation: “… but there is nothing we’re going to do about it.”
Sorry about any spam flagging. A Staph superbug infection, among other things, prevents my hands from keyboarding so that exploring Word Press’s confusing structure & rules is something I usually don’t have time to do. But I will see what I can do. Thanks for the email notification & all your participation.
Sorry to hear this and hope you are better soon.
Thanks for the heads up Cindy. I checked my spam folder and didn’t see any of your comments. Now I must go because I have so many offers for cheap cheap auto insurance to follow up on!
Cracking up…..not to mention excellent investments that will yield you amazing profits!
That is why we should keep checking our spam too, with the inbox… 🙂
Yes exactly and I haven’t been doing this, but I will now.
Great. Start from today. 🙂
Yep. That is one of the good things about life!
Bummer. I didn’t even know this could happen. I have actual (obvious) spammers get through all the time. How is that fair?
It’s not. You can black list these spammers that get through via your admin page and they will never be able to comment on your blog.
I have heard of this happening. It will make a change from p*rn and viagra links in my spam. 😉
And all the help with monetizing your blog in Korean…..indispensable!
Is that what the Korean is about? So many missed opportunities… 🙂
If only we read Korean you and I could be very rich right now!
I checked spam, but none of the comments were yours, just the usual Russian hackers and Asian porn (sorry, it’s true!). So feel free to come on over and comment anytime. 🙂
I will do so now and see what happens. I know I left you comments since I got off the boat….
Interesting, I never got them and wondered if I was ‘off the list,’ lol! I had the experience yesterday on another site of making a comment and it disappearing mysteriously, even when I rechecked later. The internet is beyond me, I’m afraid. Like a car, I can drive, but don’t ask me to fix it! 😉
I am sure many of my friends feel like this. I went to my spam filter today and two friends who I talk to regularly were there. Weird!
I’ve been having the same problem with some people trying to comment on my blogs – old followers, some of them, and I have to unspam them every single time, and some saying they aren’t even receiving my notifications any more.
And people can’t follow. This all started because I couldn’t get a message to a friend with a problem and I still can’t. Very frustrating….
I know. It’s not something I know much about fixing. Wish I did.
Thank you & if I find a solution, I will let you know.
I didn’t seem quite right to ‘like’ this post, though I did in acknowledgement of its existence. How disappointing for all concerned that your comments end up in spam!
Thank you Margaret. There were so many of them too, because once I got off the boat I was so eager to read and comment on blogs. Makes me sad people didn’t get them~
Shame on you, SPAM! Please be nice to my friend. ୧༼✿ ͡◕ д ◕͡ ༽୨
I think I caused the problem with my excessive use of vowels……
Hehehe…no way! AEIOU〜٩( ˃́▿˂̀ )۶〜AEIOU
Okay, maybe it’s the consonants…….
How incredibly frustrating and what an unsatisfying answer from WordPress. The one time I reached out for help on WordPress I had a similar experience. They gave me a half answer, and then a non-answer. Atrocious. I checked my spam filter but no comments from you.
I am so glad you checked. I never knew we had to do this. <3
The price of popularity! They are apparently in disbelief that you are followed and admired by so many – you must be a bot!!
Well, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but I am a bot. I was really hoping no one would notice.
And they didn’t completely get rid of me because I can add. You know that, “Prove you are not a bot, add 12+4, response query?”
I was always wondering, can a bot not add?
I passed in flying colors.
What is the virtual world coming too?
I hope your problem is resoved soon.
I usually check the spam fairly regularly as akismet does sometimes put friends in there. But sometimes there are too many pages of spam to skim through!
Exactly. I get lots of spam, but if I check daily it might be easier….
Another day, another dillemma!
I check my spam folder daily
I do often find friends in there
I frequently check my Spam folder just in order to stay with the WordPress Gnomes because I don’t know when they will exercise their sneaky ways. I believe I recently found one of your there, but not 100% sure. Although Askimet does well, I encourage ALL bloggers to frequently check that folder. Meanwhile … a classic for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anwy2MPT5RE
Hilarious. I’ll pass on the spam and spam and spam and spam……
Laughing is important … And that immediately came to my mind.
I want the recipe, couldn’t find it in my Julia Child, library.
I will check and make sure that likes of you dear Cindy have not been reduced to mere spam at my site! After reading the feedback you got from WordPress it made me think of a silly video game video, one of the best ever made, about World of Warcraft called Crossing Over. In a segment of it, the player in the game meets a Game master Edmund. He basically gives a typical speel of unhelpful nonsense and disappears before the player can even ask a question: https://youtu.be/Kgg9fQwY-0Q – if your curious.
Oh my God! Game Master Edmund clearly works for WP! Cracking up….. Seriously, I do feel just like that mystified character lost in an inexplicable virtual word full of double speak. WofW is so incredible. Such amazing artistry and visuals! Thank you for the clip.
So glad you enjoyed it – one of the best ever made.
Goodness. I went straight to my spam folder where there was a lot of weird stuff. It has to be frustrating to end up in spam. Occasionally I SEND something to spam accidentally and have to go rescue it, but stuff WordPress deems doubtful, but not certain spam usually appears in my comments with a yellow background. I hope you resolve it soon.
I hope so too, thank you. A very nice blogger named Rachel M who works for WP and Askimet just contacted me to help, so I have hope!
With the number of comments you get, I’m surprised you can keep track. I check my spam folder almost daily as posts often go astray in there but rarely comments. You are still where you should be in my life. 🙂
Oh, good! It’s nice to be where I belong <3
Good morning, Cindy,
That’s a typical WordPress solution: “We can’t help you.” Translated, it means, “We don’t WANT to help you.” They send you to Akismet, but that’s no solution. The simplest way would be for them or Akismet, rather, to install a White List, one onto which you can put everyone you consider not a spammer. But they simply don’t want to bother. The fact is, even if you “unspam” a comment, the following ones from the same address are again marked as spam.
I know this probloem, and therefore I frequently check my spam folders, but still I think it’s lack of willingness to help their customers on the side of WordPress – even if, like me for me mainblog – pay a lot of money for it.
Have a great Sunday,
I hear you and I agree. We are renters, essentially renting our blog space from WP who is our landlord.
It’s easy enough to go to the spam filter and mark each individual as “Not Spam” which sends it back to the regular file.
Yes, but it gets far more complicated when you have hundreds of items in your spam filter.
Yes, that is a good point. That is what makes this “Like” thing so frustrating. Luckily, I don’t have hundreds in my spam filter but then again, I don’t get too many comments which is probably a good thing as on any given day, there are 200 plus blogs that need my attention. It’s hard to “Like” them all….
Yes, everything gets far more complicated management-wise when the numbers are high.
LOL! I’m sorry for your Spamalot adventure Cindy but I love your rhyme. Sometimes we have to laugh and let it go with tech challenges. Sir spam I am.
Yes. I came to realize I am spam and I am powerless over it! 😉
LOL! You made my day twice today! Thanks Cindy. 🙂
Thanks for the tip…. ugh, one more thing I have to check! I found the spam bucket and there was indeed a “real” comment in there I would have missed otherwise. I just wish there was another word for SPAM as, although I don’t eat it now, I was raised on it and looked forward to the SPAM meals… so it has spoiled the word for me!
Yes. I used to love spam as a kid, until I read the list of ingredients!
I am sorry this has happened to you too, Cindy. Many of us have experienced this problem, and most people I am able to contact to release my commnet, but not all. I check my SPAM folder frequently. Occasionally I find legitimate bloggers in there. You have not shown up in there, yet.
You are smart to check frequently. I will start to do this too.
I have several friends I have to rescue from spam jail on a regular basis. It’s maddening, but checking the spam filter is a regular activity now.
Yes, a blogger told that once spammend, you are frequently spammed!
Thanks for comment Cindy. I not understand
It is very confusing.
How sad that people are writing to you or vice versa and comments are disappearing. always enjoy your super photography. Can’t seem to write categories on my photos – will have to pursue this. Keeping a look out for yours
Yes, the worst part of this is that messages you deliver don’t arrive and you don’t know this.
Saw you wrote about the poppies and loved your comment but it has disappeared
You’re missing a can of SPAM, the meat product you can find at the supermarket. The reason Sam-I-Am doesn’t like SPAM is because he hasn’t tried it; plus, it’s the staff of life in Hawaii. I’ve eaten it – very tasty when fried and perfect when making your own fried rice. If Sam’s SPAM is green, it must be well-past it’s expiration date of forever. 🙂
I have Askimet set for strict handling, but of course I moderate all comments and haven’t had a misdirect on comments. I can say with high confidence that none of your comments have found their way into the spam folder. [I hope I haven’t jinxed it now.]
I used to eat fried spam as a kid and enjoyed it, until I read the list of ingredients. Laughing……Sounds like you are on top of your spam filter which I now will be too.
Yes that is where I found them . I rescued yours but lost another after clicking approve . it is almost as annoying as the red undo button when I have accidentally sent a comment to spam. 🙂
Thank you for checking and yes, it is frustrating when you don’t even realize a communication has been trashed.
This is really sad… What algorithm they work on… Don’t even understand how much it takes to appreciate a fellow bloggers work and all the more hard work to write a comment
Plus, it is frustrating to think that communication you thought was delivered, wasn’t, and you never know.
I used to end up in spam constantly for no reason at all with bloggers that I’ve had relationships for years. It was maddening. I went through Askimet and it seems to be much less now. Good luck to you, Cindy. And wise advice to check spam at least once a week. 🙂
I heard from a blogging friend Rachel M who works for WP/Askimet and she offerred to help so I am hopeful! Sorry this happened to you too, but glad it has improved.
please follow the link from Akismet https://akismet.com/contact/ or/and search for the key word “Spam”. Then write the following message: „All of my comments are being marked as spam“. Then click on the option: „I think Akismet is catching my comments by mistake “. Then fill out the form below and finally submit. It is not a WordPress error. Wait a couple of days and then it should be okay.
All the best
Yes. I filled out the form. A blogger friend who works for WP/Askimet sent the link to me. Thank you very much for the help. I hope it remedies the situation.
You´re welcome. It will just take a couple of days. It is not a WordPress Problem. Only Akismet can solve the situation and will send you an E-Mail.
Wonderful. Thank you. Askimet is a WP spam filter and I do hope it works.
I think I found you in my Spam folder once, Cindy. I thought it might have been because you used a different account than usual. Oh, well, hope everything works out!
At least you checked. Thank you for letting me know.
Cindy, So sorry you are having all these issues in your comments getting into spam. I will try to figure out how to find any of your comments to my blogs that may have ended up there and try to move them. I don’t have the best grasp of navigating around wordpress and currently most of my posts are being done directly on my cell these days because the place where I am doesn’t have WiFi and I must resort to limited hot spot time when needing to use my computer in lieu of my cell. Gary
I don’t think I’m having any problems with your comments, Cindy. But another friend had your same problem last week. I’d still wonder if it isn’t a WordPress problem. Normally, I like WP’s ability to find and eliminate spam, however. –Curt
One of the reasons I stay with WP is for the spam filter, but it seems pretty easy to see how they identify spam so it also must be pretty easy to get around it if you are a spammer. Still they filter tons of spam for me for which I am grateful.
Sounds very frustrating! I make it a habit to check my spam every so often, and I do find comments in there from regular readers. So strange!
If you comment a lot on other blogs you can get identified as a spammer.
Thanks, I will have a look at the spam box.
Good. Thank you!
I found some comments by other bloggers that shouldn’t have been in there, so good thing I checked 🙂
I found the same.
I no longer ingest Spam… i’m a vegetarian.
🙂 Just kidding!
Ditto on the spam!
I have seen “Spamalot” the musical and it is humorous!
When I comment on a couple of my friend’s blogs it automatically tells me I am awaiting their approval. These are people I follow and I (think?) they follow me.
I’ll check but you shouldn’t be there since we stay in touch and I haven’t had you there before.
How aggravating, though! Off to check my spam. ❤❤🤗
The good news is, Rachel M, https://rachel.blog/about/
a fellow blogger, and an Askimet/Wordpress engineer fixed the problem yesterday and all is restored to normalcy. Thank you Rachel!
Sorry, you’re having technical issues, Cindy. Sometimes dealing with the tech gurus is almost as frustrating as the issue your having. Their answer isn’t very helpful. I periodically check my spam folders and if I see anything from you, you will be unspammed.
Thank you Steph. The problem was fixed by Rachel M a fellow blogger and Askimet/WP engineer! Woo Hoo!
Thank you very much, Sue. I will check my Spam filter.
Good and thank you Isabel!
What a frustrating problem for you Cindy. I am going to check now…
Thankfully, Rachel M a blogger and Askimet/Wordpress engineer fixed it for me!
I’ve occasionally had to ask “the happiness engineers” for help and they have always sorted my problems out. Got to love WP
I’m alerted to whats in my spam folder Cindy & check it from time to time.Your good over here.
Good news & thanks for telling me!
Aargh, intelligent learning, eh?
We’re good!! 😀 I’m always cleaning out my spam folder and am happy to report, you’re not there! LOL!
I have learned from this to check my spam daily.
The other day, I found a whole load of comments in my Spam folder from various bloggers that are my regulars. WP can be so glitchy sometimes.
Yes WP can be glitchy, but in this situation WP/Askimet solved the problem with blogger Rachel M solving the problem. Thank you Rachel!
That’s so strange Cindy!
Life in the virtual world can be strange, not just a video game! But a blogging friend, Rachel M, who works for askimet fixed it, so all is well. Cheers to you Maiko!
Sorry to hear Cindy. Askimet usually corrects the problem. I too have been found in spam and I’ve found a few in spam lately. It’s good practice for all of us to check spam when checking comments. I think it’s an epidemic, lol. 🙂
Yes, I think so, the price of thriving in the virtual world. Hugs to you my friend~
I have encountered this with other bloggers’ comments on my posts. Good thing I sometimes get curious about the spam folder.
By the way, Spam I Am is quite cute. He’ll be tasty with eggs for sure. 😊
Laughing….Yes! ‘Spam I am,’ should be eaten with green eggs, no need for ham. Hugs to you
There seems to have been a huge amount of that going around, Cindy. Another thing that I’ve found is that a comment can show up in my Spam folder several days after it was made… (eye roll). Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday! Hugs.
And some of the people you follow posts don’t show up in your reader. I suspect there may be a numerical limit to how many posts can appear in your reader.
That is very annoying, Cindy, but great to hear that Rachel fixed your problem. YAY! Pawkisses for a Happy spam free week ahead 🙂 <3
Visa versa 2U & cheers 2!
This is crazy Cindy! When I have a WordPress problem, I just throw up my hands. It seems reallu difficult to ask a specific question of a real person. So I applaud you on seeing it through! Hope it runs smooth ahead! (because we do love hearing from you!) xo
Now people’s posts are disappearing from my reader!! Oh well, such is life in a virtual world~
I know Cindy– it’s maddening. Things are just suppose to work. Good luck sorting it all out! …
Letting some form of artificial intelligence sort messages sounds as dangerous as a hand grenade. You just don’t know when someone will wander past android pull them pin! Artificial intelligence…, is that somehow related to fake news, Cuz ??? 😉
Laughing…..it’s a political plot against me, and I’m not paranoid……
So now we have a new concept – Fake Spam. Goes with the rest of the double talk “hey-look-over-there” fluster-bucketting communication. I check my spam folder for those occasional misplaced message & to see if the spam offers any Dadaist poetic material to play with. 😀
Oh my God, you genius! We could just call Trump fake spam!
But do we really want to besmirch Fake Spam ?
No, of course, you are right. Spam has nobility <3
Elmediat the Spam for some writers, certainly for those writing about religious subjects, is so serious, the amount of spam which enters our mail box is too big to examine for non-spam or fake spam. With WordPress we can more easily detect spam because than there is no photograph or emblem of the writer, so there we only have to look at the mails with a proper logo, but in the ordinary e-mail box we cannot see such logo’s.
What I find strange is that by order of the powers that be there is not more done to get rid of those malicious organisations and crooks.
Yes we seem to catch them after the fact. They keep coming up with new ways to get around the ID process.
I am simply grateful for the culling WP does and for the blacklist function that enables blocking of people who like to bother and waste my time.
I sometimes use their comments to generate/prompt some of my Dadaist/Asemic pieces. 😀
Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
Finally some time to go browsing and whilst you might usually expect some sensational photographs from Cindy Knoke.. this post has a slight different theme.. Spam in all its glory.. and topical as quite a few people lately have been commenting that their comments are going to Spam.. in fact I find on a daily basis that I am releasing regular commenters from Spam Jail. Well worth a read and there is little you can go about it if you somehow have a word or two in your comment that fails the algorithm test. #recommended
Yes, one must stay on the good side of the algorithm or else! Hugs and cheers to you dear Sally <3
Thanks Cindy… hugs xxx♥
Argh! Always something, eh?
Unfortunately, yes! But it helps to not sweat the small stuff. Cheers to you~
Small stuff is doable, but when a barrage of “big” problems converge at once, YIKES!
Reblogged this on Die Erste Eslarner Zeitung – Aus und über Eslarn, sowie die bayerisch-tschechische Region!.
Danke schoen mein lieber Freund!
Just saw this post and glad that’s fixed, I try to check my spam folder as I have found some regular readers there at times! :0 and btw keep up your amazing posts! <3
Ahhh, so nice of you & yes, I am checking spam regularly and finding friends there too sometimes, but also LOTS of spam that I am grateful Askimet filters for me!
I am also spam!!!! I think WP needs to sort it’s filters. I appreciate that the real spam gets discarded but I would like my fellow bloggers to know that I really liked their blog. Yours are all fab. Loved the stupid dog competing with the sea lion…
Interesting that you got put there too. I think it happens when you comment a lot and type very fast!!!
I had never thought of that – I do type faster than my laptop can cope with!
Cindy, checked recently and you’re good. I am getting email directly from you.
Yes, thanks, Rachel M at Askimet fixed the problem.
Eu também checo todos os dias. Abraços
Obrigada! Você é inteligente para verificar diariamente.
I have seen several postings by a lot of bloggers this last few days. A big problem is when someone has a site or more than one site where there is a lot of spamming coming in. Some of my sites get three pages of Spam. To be honest, a year and more ago I checked that spam box first, but because also having my ordinary e-mail box also getting lots of spam and receiving several hundreds of e-mail a day I do not check the spam boxes any more but delete them, after having had a very very quick look. I do know some post may be lost or not reaching me, but those useless spammers have won on that part that they managed not even to receive a glimpse of me. (Normally I would have thought they would have like to catch an eye but because of the am punt of spammers they are missing the change to advertise for themselves or to bring people to their /mostly sex-/ site.)
