An Apology to Posters of Comments

23 Nov

I seem to have had too much faith in the automatic systems of WordPress.  I have never checked my “spam” comments, simply believing my dashboard when it tells me it has “protected” me from x spam comments.  Today, out of curiosity, I looked at the 5 that were still in the queue.  Three were spam (although two were cunningly disguised), one I couldn’t really interpret, and the final one was a perfectly nice, relevant comment.  Oops.  I’ve approved it now, but if that sample is anything to go on, up to 20% of the automatically deleted comments could be non-spam.  (And yes, I know that’s statistically dodgy because it’s too small a sample, but you see my point.)

So, if you have posted anything to this site which was not spam, and it never appeared, please accept my apologies.  I’ll try and be more diligent in checking my spam queue in future.
