This gripe follows on from My gripe with WordPress. As I commented on there in the comments today, I said how I heard from a blogger that I like to comment on her blog, but all of a sudden, I couldn’t. This was because I was in her spam box.
So WordPress, pay attention. Stop playing with things that people don’t want. But start sorting out the issue where genuine comments fall in the spam box, that shouldn’t be there.
I am not saying first time commenters. I am saying readers who have commented for some time on my blog, without any issues, but all of a sudden now appear in my spam box. I now have also experienced where I have appeared in a bloggers spam box, on a blog I regularly commented on before.
So as this is a common problem amongst bloggers, isn’t it time WordPress you start sorting it? Especially as there are bloggers here who pay for their blog.
In the meantime, until WordPress are bothered, do make sure you check your spam box at least once a week, because you may find a genuine reader who has commented, but landed up there.
