Beware of Comments from Followers Going to Spam!

After reading Christopher @ Plucked from the Stacks’s post this morning, where he mentioned that his comments on other blog sites were inexplicably going to the spam folder, I immediately checked out mine. Unfortunately, I found several of my friends and followers languishing there.

My apologies if you wondered why I didn’t reply or reflect your comments on my site. I could only look back the previous eight days.

I’ve also noticed that my comments aren’t showing up on some blogs that I follow. I fear the same may be happening to me.

Just an FYI to periodically check your comments spam folder. The system isn’t perfect.

  1. I must thank you for this, Jonetta, because until I read it, I didn’t even realize that I had a spam folder for junk comments. I searched a bit, found it, and did find a legitimate reader comment in the pile. Very helpful!

  2. Oh, you too, Jonetta? It’s been happening to me, seemingly random followers have turned up in the spam, and I only noticed a couple of weeks ago as I wondered what had happened to a couple of people. I just assumed Gmail was up to its usual being an ass. It’s really annoying. I now check daily but we shouldn’t have too.
