I’ve been alerted to the fact that WordPress is once again diverting some of my real commenters’ messages to the spam box. 🤦🏻♀️ So far I have not found a way to fix this. Unfortunately, I get too many spam comments to turn off the filter, and WP gives me the option to block people but not to mark them as always approved.
So… if you notice your comment not showing up immediately, feel free to let me know any other way you can contact me! I will try to remember to keep an eye on the spam box, at least on a weekly basis.
