Are Your Comments Getting Through?


Published on

A reader emailed me this morning to let me know that many of his comments to the blog have not gotten through. That was a surprise to me, because I never saw them in my moderation queue.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a tech expert. I’ve done my best to set the blog up so that it’s both user and operator friendly. Earlier I had a problem with a spam plug-in that was blocking comments with links, so I switched to Bad Behavior which is supposed to be better in that regard. However, this reader’s comments had a number of links and I suspect that is why they were blocked.

Is anyone aware of an anti-spam plugin for WordPress that does a good job blocking spam but allows comments with links (or at least allows them to be moderated)?

Please do let me know if you have posted comments that haven’t made it through. I’d like to know about it so I can resolve the problem.

Thanks for your help.

  1. New reader with a question – study (I believe from Duke) said coffee raises diabetics blood sugar.  What I can’t find out, is was it the coffee or the caffeine?  Can you help me?
