And the confusion is all mine.
Bringing my main computer back up last night after a couple of days of being offline for maintenance, I was faced with almost 500 comments flagged by Akismet as spam. Being the conscientious administrator that I am, I waded through every one of those comments to make sure none of them had been unfairly flagged.
Unfortunately, I was tired; so at the end of the process, instead of hitting the “de-spam marked comments” button, I hit the “delete all comments” button.
My apologies if I deleted a real comment. In particular, I’m thinking of a pair of comments about the Saco River that I wanted to take a closer look at before I stupidly deleted them. If you haven’t given up in disgust, please try again. Comments on this blog are rare enough that I can ill afford to lose any.
