I think I owe some folks an apology. Todd Defren (@TDefren) tweeted today:
“Hmm. Finally checking Spam Filter on WordPress blog. False positives galore. Better stop hitting “Delete All Spam” w/o checking. Oy.”
Oh, dear. I had a number of “Spam” items that had been caught up by one of the WordPress tools. Now I’m more concerned that I might have blocked reasonable comments. Starting out with WordPress I was more concerned about all those folks selling teeth whiteners and those whose focus in life is either far right wing and/or negative. I’m willing to try opening this up a bit more and we’ll see what happens. Meanwhile I apologize that all the Spam comments that Akismet (sp?) captured were automatically deleted and I never had the opportunity to even vet them. Me bad. Will try harder going forward.
