My Name Is Louise and I Am Spam

Hi guys, just a quick note that I end up in spam filtres right now. Like, most of them. I noticed this because my comment didn’t appear on Amy’s new chapter. This is sad. If you guys see me liking something andΒ notΒ commenting, chances are great I’m hanging out in your spam folder* where it is dark and cold and I can’t see. Please, help me out of there.

Anyway, thanks in advance for helping me out. Where I can, I’ll contact you guys by other means (contact pages and so on), but for a lot of you I don’t have that option.

Cheers!
~Louise

(And yes, this post is pretty much me trying to get hold of Amy).

*Sometimes I don’t comment because I’m currently binging your story. There can be many reasons for this – some days I just want to read. Some days I’m shy/anxious. Some days I don’t have anything to say. ForΒ most cases, though, if I read your story and comment regularly, and I suddenly don’t, I’m probably spam. I don’t know if that helps at all, but I tried.

    Dammit, WordPress!
    Before I begin commenting on anyone’s chapters — I think this *might* be happening to me as well. As Louise said, if I have liked your post but not commented as expected, please check if I’m also sitting sadly in your spam folder πŸ™‚ Personal reach out: Sempreviva, I think my comment on your last post may be there πŸ˜›

      At least you don’t end up there with me, so that’s good!
      It’s a super pain, though, especially for those who don’t have contact pages or other means of communicating (FB, Tumblr…).

      Aaaand I accidentally poseted my answer to you on this post’s comment section instead of replying – Seems like I derp a lot these days, lol! 😢 <3
      And, Louise, this is the evidence that WP is so unfair – I should be ending up in spam for spamming your post like this, lmao! Sorry! 😢 <3
      (And I promise I'll be very careful with my spam folder from now on!)

    I love the reference with my post about me and my name being Jowita. πŸ˜›
    I am so sorry that this is now not only the case with me. I have gone through periods of this so many times now, it’s saddening to see other people suffering this WP nonsense.
    Btw, though, don’t know if you’ve seen my comment, but silly WP finally changed your primary blog to this one, which is linked in the comments and when you like a post. At least this is somehow good news.

    • NotJustaBook

      Oh, I forgot about your post that was named like that – I was probably subconsciously influenced. Sorry about that :O
      It’s super annoying that it keeps happening. As a registered WP user, the filter really should let you through. In my experience, spammers aren’t registered.
      I saw it. I’m so sorry – I just forgot to answer/like. Thank you for telling <3

      • Jowita

        Ha, ha, I just thought it was great to see like it was influenced. My post is called “I’m Jowita and I now make poses”, so I think it sounds kind of similar.
        Yeah, WP’s a mess.

        • NotJustaBook

          Yes, I had to go back and see which one it was and then I remembered. You definitely inspired me, even if it wasn’t entirely intentional on my part!

  • amyqueen

    Haha oh no! Thanks for making this~ the title made me laugh πŸ˜€ I’ve found you amongst the actual spam and fished you out XD <3 I don't know why WP tends to do this *sigh* I usually check my spam folder should I notice a like and no comment from usual commenters, but I also realize sometimes people are busy and need to wait until they have time, example A being me myself this past week, haha. I suppose it might have to do with you switching to your own domain now? Look at me trying to justify WP's messes as if this doesn't happen randomly as well *facepalm* For now, welcome back to the light!

    • NotJustaBook

      You’re welcome <3 I was so upset the comment didn't go through! I'm always so scared I can't get through to people.
      Jowita was speculating that it's to do with me changing my default webpage. WP finally links my new blog in comments, so maybe that's it? πŸ˜›
      Thank you for getting my out of the spam folder - ha, ha :')

  • Kymber

    I really hate when this happens but I’m glad you said something the other day because I did, indeed, find you in my spam folder. I hope all is better in that regard now. One time, I had to contact Aksimet and have them undo it for me.

    • NotJustaBook

      Yeah, I noticed that it just didn’t seem to post to your blog πŸ™
      It’s really crazy how much it happens. Thankfully, my spam filtre isn’t full anymore, but it was a big problem when it was!

  • sempreviva

    Oooops, I just saw that! I’m so sorry, still catching up! 😢 <3
    Oh shoot, I know Jowita's comment ended up in spam and since I had so long to check my spam folder I went on a pretty lethal spam rampage πŸ˜› And it seems that I *might* have deleted yours by accident too? Cause I can't find it, I'm so sorry! 😭
