Tag Archives: Comments disappearing

Wham, bam, thank you spam!

This is (almost) entirely infertility unrelated. I’m not sure that sentence makes sense. It looks weird. The word eleven looked weird to me today as well. You know when you stare at something for too long then you can’t tell if it’s spelt wrong or not, or even really remember if it’s a real word? Eleven, eleven, eleven. Yep, still weird.

Anyway, about 10 days ago I noticed that none of my comments were appearing on blogs. After a half hearted investigation yesterday, I discovered that I am one of a fairly large number of special chosen people in the UK who Akismet has randomly picked and marked as spam. This means all of my comments are going into spam folders.

I haven’t commented that much since I realised my comments kept disappearing, but I have haphazardly with no rhyme or reason commented on blogs to check (still disappearing).

If you think I might have commented on your blog, I’d check your spam folder. I might have. Then again, I might not have (sorry). Sometimes my comments were like 4 lines long and poof! disappeared. Annoying.

I am making efforts to have myself removed from whatever black list Akismet have decided to put me on for no good reason whatsoever, but they are shady individuals who ignore emails and goodness knows what else I don’t know about.

That’s it. Sorry. I am not that self absorbed, and I am reading all of your blogs. You’ll just have to take my word for it.

Small 9dp2dt update: still pregnant. Did a digital test so I could see it it writing, “pregnant 1-2 weeks” is the official verdict from Clearblue. Best £9 I have ever spent in my life.

P.s. Has anybody ever eaten spam? I haven’t. According to The Source Of All Knowledge (Wikapedia, I’ve not had a chat with God) the seven billionth can of Spam was sold in 2007. You’ll thank me one day when that comes up in a pub quiz.
