No Comment…

A pleas to fellow Bloggers

Dear WordPressers

I wonder if any of you can help?

For the last couple of months, I’ve had problems ‘liking’ and leaving comments on other blogs. When I click ‘reply’, add my pithy and well-considered comments to your splendid blog posts, and click ‘send’, sure enough they  appear in the normal way on my screen- i.e, as the latest in the chronological list of comments from other commenters in the time-honoured way. ‘Hurrah,’ I think…But hang on a mo… If I refresh, or move away from that page then return to it, my comments and also (I think) the ‘like’ I have sent have disappeared from the record.

I can only think that:
– The whole blogosphere hates me and have allocated my comments to ‘spam’ en masse
– I am doing something stupid
– There is something amiss somewhere with my own blogs Settings
– My comments are so spiteful, petty or dull that WordPress is censoring them

Oddly, if you are kind enough to comment on any of my posts, the reply I make back to you by way appears to stick without a problem.

I’ve tried Googling the reason but have only found gobbledegook – I can’t seem to find this exact problem, which probably suggests I am doing something within the ‘stupid’ category.

Anyway. Until this is sorted, please don’t think I don’t love you all and your delightful posts

    I have no idea why it is happening but it happens to me too. Just on certain blogs.

  3. Aha! Maybe we are on to something…


  4. It happens to me occasionally, but only for a short time. If I wait a day my likes and comments work again.

    Hii Martin
    Your comments get through to me every time, I believe. I hadn’t seen any stories for a few months but I just assumed you were working on other projects or stories.


  6. What a pain! Hope it’s resolved soon.


  7. sorry this is happening to you. And us, since we’re missing out on your comments. Have you queried wordpress directly?
