To My Friends Who Use Wordpress

I've been running around the past week trying to catch up and comment on blogs I've been neglecting. A couple of days ago, I went back to my friend Rootie's blog and made a revolting discovery.

She'd deleted my comments.

Well no, not really. They just didn't show up. I went to every other place I'd been commenting, and none of them showed up on blogs that had Wordpress.

I did a little troubleshooting, and the best I can figure is that suddenly Wordpress has decided that I'm a spammer and has blocked my IP address.

I'm not sure that I'm the only one this is happening to, but if you feel like you're a little light in the comment department, check out your spam catcher in your comments section. You have to mark "this is not spam" for it to unblock IP addresses.

There was a blogger that participated in our photo challenge last time who's site wouldn't let me post a comment. Kept treating me like a proxy or some such thing.

There's another reason I'm not switching to WordPress. That really stinks!

Good thing you found out and have the wherewithal to get to the bottom of it and pass it along.

I didn't! I swaer! They eventually showed up...I have no idea why. Wordpress recently changed their format, maybe that screwed things up for a while. I hate change.

I dont like to work with word press. I dont really understand it and find it difficult to post with. the onliest thing is the info it gives when you post photos..i gives the camera and the settings. and the quality of the photos is pretty good.

Well, you're not the only one having that trouble on my blog.
I love wordpress, but then Blogger always frustrated me and I switched.
It's kind of like taking a hammer to my foot because I've got a migraine. LOL!
I know you love me. LOL!

Your comments are still there on my WP blog.

That's too bad, Mom. Of all the bloggers and wordpressians I know, you're the only one whose comments are occasionally funny. I hate to see those go missing.
