Website matters: comment glitch

All of a sudden I find myself approving a lot of comment from readers who haven’t been put on moderation (“moderation” means that I must approve every comment they make). I’m not sure why this has happened, and it may be a glitch in WordPress. All I can say for now is make sure you keep entering the name and email address you’ve always used, which is what the screening function recognizes.  If your comment gets held up and they’ve always gone through before, this does not mean you’re being moderated!

    Thanks for the head’s up. This happened to one of my comments on the Franken post.

    I, for one, welcome our new algorithmic overlords.

    There’s been something borked since about 12:00 (GMT) – I’ve had FireFox lock up (100% processor usage) about half a dozen times, and it seems to be WordPress or Gravatar. Now I can see that there have been replies to me, but can’t get the list up. Definitely something borked.

    \has it been happening to people (like me) using their WordPress accounts?

      I was just using my usual gmail interface.
