Attention Wordpress Bloggers

Dear Wordpress Bloggers,

I'm not ignoring you this week... honest. For whatever reason, Wordpress has decided I'm a spammer. Any comments I leave are vanishing into thin air or ending up in your spam folders (Word Lily figured that out!).

Restarting the computer helped a couple of times, but today nothing seems to be working. Violet suggested I remove all cookies and empty the cache, but still no luck. My computer skills are limited, but I'd appreciate any other suggestions.

At least I can still read your blogs...

Thanks in advance,


  1. I'm glad you mentioned something, because sure 'nuf, there you were hanging out with all of that rude spam. :-(

  2. Sorry to hear you are having trouble - I've just fished you out of my spam too :-( I hope you get it fixed soon

  3. Softdrink - Ha...maybe it had to do with what I was typing about WH???

    Jackie - This morning WP let me comment. We'll see if it works the next time...

  4. wow, that is weird! I didn't even know there was a spam folder other than in e mail. We are at the mercy of machines! Hope it gets straightened out.

  5. Whoa! I found your comment in my spam folder. Thanks for letting us know!

  6. Kaye - Wish I could figure out why wordpress thinks I'm a spammer. Some are going through today..

    Gavin - I'm in quite a few spam folders this week, lol! Most have gone through today, so hopefully this is over.

  7. Oh no! That's horrible. I hope you're able to find a solution soon.

  8. Oops - just tweeted you the same! Was most surprised to find you there yesterday and again today (not sure if I missed any earlier in week - thought you had been quiet but then so am I so didn't think anything of it!) Have you changed ISP at all?

  9. That's very annoying! I think I found you in my spambox a while ago, but you seem to be appearing again now that I've told Wordpress once again that you're not spam.

  10. Vasilly - I'm still working on it. Seems to have resolved with some blogs, but not all.

    Paperback Reader - That's what seems so strange to me - nothing at all has changed. My comments went through on a few blogs today, but not yours...

    Iris - Thanks for telling WordPress I'm not a spammer! The comment I left you this morning was one of the few that went through.

  11. Wow, that is very weird! I'm going to have to search through my blogs there to see if you're "hanging" in space!

    I thought they let us decide who was spam, but apparently not.

    I wish Blogger would be better about eliminating those really strange spammers that I get at least once a day and then have to "reject" and delete!

  12. I'm glad you posted about this. I went to my spam folder (330 spams!) and found your comments plus several other of my regular visitors. I'm sorry Wordpress is behaving so poorly.

  13. OMG, I hope you get this resolved quickly. What a pain.

  14. That is really irritating! I just found a comment from you in my spam this morning but I just figured it was a fluke--I didn't realize this was happening for all your comments! I hope it all gets resolved soon.

  15. Laurel-Rain Snow - Still can't figure out what I've done to make WordPress mad!

    Margot - I hope they let me leave you comments this week...

    Marie - Seems to be a sporadic problem now...

    Reviewsbylola - This morning they let my comment to you go through. Hope it's fixed for good!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! Be sure to check back, I always respond. Due to a recent increase in spam, all comments are moderated.
