Technical Issues...

From the very beginning, I have set this blog up in such a way that new comments, waiting to be published, would be sent to my personal email account, from which I would review and publish them. Given that I have continued to get such emails on a regular basis, I have never had any reason to suspect there was a problem.

Yet it seems there was.

Upon checking the section of this blog that stores comments waiting to be published, (something I thought I had little reason to do), I found no less than four comments waiting for my approval; some have been there since June!

I went ahead and published them all, for what that may be worth. My apologies to anyone who left such "lost comments". I will now make an effort to check the comment publication cue on a regular basis, for those comments that escape my email, for some reason.

Ty,

I had a moderation on for several months because of someone who harassed me with terrible notes...when that person saw that his comments came to me first and he would get no satisfaction from watching my humiliation in public, he stopped. I removed the moderation now but it was excellent protection at the time and basically it worked ok overall.

You can always keep checking in your blog's control panel as well, to make sure no one's missed out.

Moderation is also really the only way to stop spam from taking over your comments...

I have always had moderation on the comments. It goes to my email, and then I accept or deny it from there. The problem recently was that I was never informed that a comment was awaiting approval. So they sat there for several months.

So now the air waves are not only eating lost texts, but lost comments as well. Since both are happening there must be something w/ the waves.
