    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.

    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.

    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.
