I just sat down to deal with the 45 or so comments that have stacked up over the past few days and somehow deleted them. The comment that was the top one on the list was a spam comment. I thought I checked the box next to it, but somehow I checked the box (that was right above it) for all comments and hit the Remove Spam button. Suddenly all the comments were gone. I’ve fiddled around for the past half hour or so trying to get them back, but to no avail. They are history. If you’ve had a comment pending, I apologize. Please resend.
One of the reasons this happens is that most of the comments aren’t comments – they’re questions. If I don’t have the time to answer them, they stay in the awaiting moderation queue. They stack up until I have some downtime to sit and answer them. As of late, I haven’t had much time, consequently the questions stack up.
I think I’m going to start doing like everyone else who blogs and simply post the comments as they come in without answering them individually. Many are asking the same general questions, so they can be answered with one comment from me instead of multiple individual responses. We’ll see how that works.
Once again, I’m sorry if your comment got zapped.
