My vreugdes en frustrasies

Dis Ekke

I am in your spambox

Since yesterday, many of my comments on other blogs seem to disappear without a traceย the moment I hit the “send” button. I can only deduce that this is a system problem, since I don’t use swear words (as a rule) and usuallyย avoid controversial topics ๐Ÿ˜›

Blog Andrew, castelsarrasin, rondomtaliedraai, Ouch!! My back Hurts – I distinctly remember commenting on your latest posts, but I think it may have ended up in your spambox *wiping a tear*. Please check and let me know if you if you find anything.

Maybe this is a sign that I should shut my trap for a while. ย

    Good morning Hestor, I’m unsure if I’ve confused readers by naming a post twice and I’m not into ๐Ÿ™‚ self promotion but I was curious did you see my second bee post. One of my favourites I hope Holly sees it because she likes wildlife photos ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Andrew, no I haven’t seen it yet; I was running around with the family over the weekend and a client yesterday and have some catching up to do. I’ll have a look and hope that I will be able to comment. I saw your “pregnant lady” post this morning.

        Thank you Hester, I know you didn’t mind me asking ๐Ÿ™‚ (I’m in a productive writing mode at the moment, funny how this happens, as long as I make readers smile I’m happy ๐Ÿ˜€ )

          You know, I am so angry right now (at WP) – I still can’t publish comments, although I can answer to comments that bloggers post on my page. Luckily, my brain is still working and I made a copy of the comment that I placed on your bumble bee blog. Said comment has subsequently disappeared, but here is the copy: “I love English gardens. The plants and flowers are so delicate and the colours are … how can I say? more subtle? … compared to the woody stems, broad leaves and bright colours we are used to here. Of course, we have a harsh climate and scarce water resources. Your mum really has green fingers.”

          ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes she has and thank you, I’ll tell her someone saw the photos from my tablet and said how much she liked them. (lol I’ll not admit to WP though)

          Is WP allergic to criticism? Sounds like the government of a certain country ๐Ÿ˜€

          Haha they must see something in your blog we all don’t? But seriously I could see how infuriating removing comments is, I enjoy interacting with other people from around the globe and I know you’re the same. ๐Ÿ™‚ But at least now we understand why.

  10. Ai nee man, hulle mors met jou, die internet gremlins!!! Ek kry darem jou kommentaar.

  11. Dit gebeur soms. Ver alleen weet hoekom. WordPress blameer dit seker op Matt.

      Nee, die probleem was blykbaar dat Akismet my comments verkeerdelik in hulle spam-net gevang het. Dit gebeur wanneer jou settings vir spam baie streng gestel is, of wanneer jou IP-adres verander (wanneer jy byvoorbeeld jou router reset). Soms kry jy ‘n IP wat voorheen reeds gebruik was en dalk gerapporteer was as spam. WP het gehelp dat ek dit kon laat regstel. Wat ookal, dit lyk darem of dit nou opgelos is ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. “Do not refrain from talking,” sรช Andrew ๐Ÿ™‚ Ek stem saam…. hoe gaan ek nou weet wat by die Suidkus aangaan as jy ophou praat.

  13. Ek hoop dit kom gou reg.

  14. ‘n Rukkie gelede het ek van jou kommentare in die spamboksie gevind, lank nadat jy dit gelewer het. Ek het dit ontspam.
