It’s the most annoying thing when comments do not appear. At the Mail, for example, it often says thank you and then doesn’t show it. Yet half an hour later, it does. Am I on some special moderation, do they not like my views?
More often than not it might have been that the moderator was out to lunch at the time in London or just a tech glitch. To remove such glitches, one needs to be techie and I for one am not.
Just why Hereward’s comments were in spam I do not know but they were there. Just why a system which should have recognized him as one of the most consistent contributors suddenly didn’t like him, as it also does to me, is a mystery I don’t have the expertise to explore and those that do are busy.
Do you know it won’t let me comment either? I have to go in via the dashboard. And I’m meant to be the moderator. Sheesh! Now there may be some reason such as some trojan or whatever I don’t know of and it picks it up.
Trouble is, there are baddies out there who do come in to wreck and the system says look, do you want keen filtering or not? Sadly, we must have it. Therefore, Julia and I must come in at intervals and manually sort it.
Which p***es off some of our readers. Which we don’t want. Which is the ongoing battle. Sorry again.
