For some reason the blog’s spam filter has been getting overwhelmed with comment spam lately. The filter catches it all, but a lot has been coming in, as you can see from this image from the BIE management page.
Those 107 comments caught in the spam filter came in over the course of less than five minutes and right after I emptied the folder of more than 400 comments listed as spam.
Many of which look like this in the spam folder:
This happens from time to time and until it gets back to normal I’m not going to bother rooting through the blog’s spam folder looking for any legitimate comments that may have been misdirected there.
So, if you’ve posted a comment and it hasn’t appeared after a couple of days that’s because it got erroneously routed into the comment spam folder by the blog spam filter and I shitcanned it without bothering to read it to see if it were legit.
As I said, this happens from time to time and things should be back to normal soon, I hope.
