Just a quick message (advisory) to those of you who rarely check your spam filters. Please understand this is a rant, but I’m not disrespecting those who are guilty I’m also not familiar with all the different spam filtering plugins etc. so it may very well be an issue with the system you use and not you the blogger.
My domain triggers many spam filters. It may be due to the words “money” or “online” in my URL. It may also be due to people accidentally flagging my comments as spam or people that don’t like what I say so they spam me to “get back” at me, who knows. All I know is I’ve never spammed anyone, ever!
The fact that many of my comments never show up on blogs makes me wonder how many others are going through the same thing.
On blogs that I really like and/or that are run by friends and/or frequent commenters of this blog, I’ll still leave comments frequently and contact them or attempt to contact them letting them know that I need fished out of their filter.
However, on blogs that I just found and liked, if my comments never show up I most likely never come back.
The moral of the story is that just because a comment ends up in your spam filter doesn’t mean it’s spam.
Check your spam filters daily. If you don’t you’ve probably lost a bunch of good comments and trackbacks as well as regular readers who never come back because they can’t even contribute.
