Ok, well blogger doesn't even know me, but it certainly feels like I have been blackballed.
A few months ago, I occasionally noticed that when I left a comment elsewhere, it would disappear. Oddly enough the blog owner would receive it via email, but it would never show up with the other comments. Poof...just disappeared.
This didn't really bother me much because I knew the intended party received the comment. My intent was achieved...say a kind word. I try my darndest to leave a tidbit when I visit. I wouldn't stop by your house and not speak to you. (of course, reading at Google reader is not stopping at your house and I have been known to be lazy that way...)
Anyway...I started noticing it was happening all the time. I could pretty much count on my comments disappearing. I even joked a few times that maybe God was trying to tell me to "shut up." I make an effort to be kind, however, so I didn't really think that. But it did start to affect the quantity of my comments. "Why bother?" I thought. I started to doubt whether they even reached the intended friend.
Well, duh, I finally realized (a friend informed me) that my comments were going to spam. Once they were released from
And now I am just offended. Why me? Why my comments? Am I spam?
I searched the blogger forum for an answer but never found one. I just don't know why my comments go to spam. But if you get a comment from me, and it doesn't show up on your blog, check your spam folder on your dashboard's comments page. I'll be waiting.
