About Spam…

Well, so far, I’ve seen no reason to not trust WordPress. But, a couple of days ago, I noticed a sudden spike in the number of comments marked ‘spam’. I never check that folder… this time I did. I found that about 40% of the commens were not spam at all! They were all from regular other bloggers who had written nice things, no profanity, no nothing! Now, why would that be…

Anyway, I just wanted to say that if you’d have commented on some post and it never appeared on my blog, it is possible that it got flagged as spam and then deleted automatically after a few days… what a tragic loss! But from now on, I will be checking the folder regularly, so no worries!

If you know why this might be happening, do let me know.

Thanks for your words, all of you 🙂

  1. I check my spam folder every week. I had this happen as well – I’m new to wordpress so for me it was just a few comments, but I wonder why they ended up in spam. I’m starting to think it has something to do with the length of the comment – the longer it is, the more likely it ends up as spam. At least thats how my comments appear..
