Comments on My Blog


I don’t edit comments that readers post on my blog, because there isn’t a reason to do it.   Once or twice a day, I check my blog’s spam filter for posts that were inadvertently flagged as spam.   If you post more than one link, or if the filter thinks your link is spam, it will be flagged and won’t appear on your page as being moderated. Fear not if your comment isn’t approved immediately – it more than likely means I haven’t had the chance to manually approve it.

Previously, I answered questions or made my own comments in comments left by readers. Since enabling subscriptions to comments, I’ve since amended this practice, as when I left a comment in this manner, the reader didn’t necessarily know I commented unless he returned.   Going forward, I will reply to comments in a new comment thread, thus allowing the subscription widget to work correctly.

If your post isn’t approved for some reason, it probably means I am away from my computer or Blackberry. I don’t have a problem with people expressing their opinions, even if they are different than my own. In fact, I encourage that because it helps everyone learn, including myself. This would be a boring place if we all agreed with each other.

As always, thank you for your comments, criticism, advice, and than you for reading my blog.

  1. Elliot,

    Thanks for the update and installing the follow up by email feature.

    How about setting up the threaded comments feature in WP 2.7 ? I think it’s much cleaner than the threaded comments *plugin* that is out there.
