Sorry to hear your comments are not appearing! In fact we don't remove any of your comments … it's just that anything posted with a link in it gets held for moderation, and sometimes I don't get around to approving the "held for review" comments for a while. I have always approved anything I've seen from you!
The reason for that policy is spam … if we didn't hold comments with links, we would be overrun by ads for viagra and essay writing services. I delete dozens of these spam comments every week.
A lot had no web links or emails or anything like that.
In fact I'm probably your most prolific SPAM reporter as I regularly trawl through historic posts both for pleasure and for our haiku courses, giving web links, as otherwise we like to ask permissions. :-)
So I'm perplexed.
Perhaps I'll venture forth nervously and post over the next month or so. The thing is, that if I don't record the comment on a word.doc, and I spend a lot of time on them, then it's lost forever, and I can't use them.
So my posts don't have links, I think one or two very historic ones do, and I am your main reporter of Spam where the author's name/avator is a direct link to promotions of electronic goods etc… <grin>
No, it's not that, some have been up for almost a day, sometimes longer. I'm very careful about what I put into a comment (no web links anymore) and if I have to, drafting it temporarily onto a word.doc which I've usually deleted once the comment is up safely.
