It’s come to my attention that at least one person has repeatedly sent in a comment and been told I must approve it. (Beliefnet’s system has occasionally told me I had to personally approve my OWN comments.) I never received notice that I was supposed to approve a comment. (They are supposed to notify me by email, and I then go to a special site were I can approve, delete, or mark a comment as spam.) Fortunately that person had other ways of contacting me (sorry, 3rd Degree secret).
I know Beliefnet has been trying to find ways to filer out increasingly sophisticated spam, and I imagine the new system they are trying is far too restrictive. If you have sent in a comment, been told I would have to approve it, and never seen anything, please notify me on Facebook. That’s not a 3rd degree secret and it will work.
