Missing comments

Thanks to a friend who alerted me this morning to the fact that some comments she had posted had never appeared. On checking into it, I found a whole load of comments "awaiting moderation", going back to at least May 2010, possibly earlier. I would like to apologise sincerely to all those whose comments didn't appear or who might have thought I was ignoring them, I assure you that could never be the case. In fact I was a little sad at the lack of comments but felt, hey, that's the way it is in the blogosphere, mustn't let it get me down!

How it happened, as best I can figure. I never had comment moderation on before because comments were few and I got an email immediately so I could always delete any objectionable ones manually. Then someone started posting malicious stuff about someone who was mentioned in a post so I turned comment moderation on, and went about my business, thinking I'd continue to get email notifications. But it seems that turning moderation on has the effect of turning email notifications off and I didn't realize that. It's taken a while and I might never have known if Lynx hadn't alerted me. It's fixed now and once again my apologies to those whose comments have taken so long to appear.

Delighted to see that you are back online again. No - we weren't ignoring you - I know, it's difficult when you post something you really like and no-one comments. Anyway - hopefully all sorted now.
Best wishes, Lynn

Thanks Lynn!

Ah well, sorted now. Maybe post some more drawings now. I wonder are you still motivated to draw now you've finished your course?

Mary said...

Yes and yes, will post more drawings soon.

The drawing in Wales you asked about Mark, it was in North Wales where my sister lives, easily the most beautiful place in the world after Ireland . . .

In my case, my blog disappeared completely! But it turned out that there was just some temporary glitch in Blogger's system. Perhaps we have the same case? Read my story about what happened to my blog, and you might figure out what went wrong in yours. Thanks!
