A Little Announcement

Blogs get a lot of spam. You guys don’t see it, but I do.  For example, right now, the spam folder here has 127 messages in it, and I typically empty it every couple of days.

To make things easier, I have some software on this blog that filters out spam and sends it straight to the spam folder where I can deal with it in bulk.  It’s simply a time-saver and generally works very well.

The last few days, though, something weird has been happening.

Some of your comments are being sent, not to the spam folder, but to the trash.

The bad news is that they were piling up there.  Another bit of bad news is that sometimes the software stuttered and repeated a message several times. And another piece of bad news is that I do not know how to fix it because I do not know what is causing it.

The good news is that now I know this is happening.

I have restored as many as I could, and I will monitor the trash daily from now on.

I am not trying to prevent anyone from posting.  Promise.  🙂

  1. I trust you as you have proven you don’t delete or censor posts like the Blessed One. The only think you have ever prevented are attacks on the Naugler children.


  2. I have, in fact, not approved a few comments that were clearly attacks on other commenters. If people are civil, their posts will be approved, even if I don’t agree with their opinions.


  3. Kaylee, the spam software insists that you are spam. I keep explaining that you are not, but it is relentless about it. 🙂


  4. Thanks for the heads up about this issue. Pain in the rear for you. We appreciate all of your efforts!


  5. Thanks for all your hard work on this blog Sally. I really appreciate the fact that, unlike Nicole, you don’t remove post you don’t agree with. Can you imagine the amount of removed posts Nicole has amassed while *trying* to portray herself as a blameless Christian homesteader?
