This isn’t really a warning; I’m just frustrated; so I’m expressing myself. As a blogger, I’ve tried to help other bloggers by telling them to set their site to automatically approve every comment and to check their spam folder regularly; but I can’t do more than that. It’s annoying when I leave a comment on someone’s post and it gets moved to the spam folder; then I have to keep commenting, telling them to check their spam folder and still, nothing. There’s no big deal in setting your site automatically approve all comments and checking your spam folder regularly.
Yesterday, I tried to help someone who had an issue but because the person’s site is set to hold each comment in moderation; awaiting approval, my comment got moved to their spam folder and I was unable to help. It’s not only annoying when I leave a comment on someone’s post and that comment isn’t visible; it’s also frustrating trying to contact them just to tell them to check their spam folder. My site is set to automatically approve all comments, but I still find comments in my spam folder; that’s why I check regularly.
So for that reason, and to avoid the frustration; I’ve decided that I’ll no longer comment on anyones post if their site isn’t set to automatically approve all comments. I know when someone’s site is set that way. So even if I have something to say, I won’t leave a comment any longer.
