It has become apparent through HP Facebook groups and connections that quite a few of us were unaware that there are comments going unseen in a spam folder.
If you click on your comments tab where you approve comments, check the drop down menu that states "Unmoderated" etc. There will be a selection called "Spam", select it and find your missing comments.
I hope this helps as many as it has helped just now,
I just did this Emma, and I found quite a lot of legitimate comments going back months and months- amazing! I did find a couple of proper spam comments though and deleted them. Still, its worth taking a look. Giving this thread a well deserved bump.
HI Emma I found this out a while back, A Friend of mine asked me how I liked his comment and I told him I didn't get a comment from him.. Yep it was in the spam folder I try to check this out every few days.. I usually find a few to. People need to know this. Chery
That was cool. Thanks! I found one comment labeled spam and it wasn't, so I was allowed to correct that. There is so much yet to learn on these pages and each is valuable.
Holly Berry Ddraigcoch! Thanks for that info! Found two recent comments with 0 hubs for the posters, one banned and two off site.
I never even thought to check all the items in the pull down menu awesome. Thanks for sharing and yes, bump
I found loads that should have got through from legitimate hubbers! whats that about? thanks that was a good bit of info.
Thanks for the information! I had never even thought to check the pull-down menu on comments. I am going to check right now to see what I have missed.
I have not been checking but after your alert I did check. And I have a very important post. Thanks.

Is there some way that messages caught by the automated spam filters can be blocked from the feed page? The most annoying part is that even once deleted forever, they continue to show up there.

I just read a Hub about apple pie recipes that got a huge amount of comments, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that a food & cooking related hub had such response when mines barely get 3 or 4 comments and are...
