Dear Wonderduck

I think I landed on your blacklist somehow. My comments on your site aren't showing up any more. One of them said it was going into a moderation queue (could you check) but now they don't say anything at all; they just vanish.

I'd appreciate if you could look into it. Thank you.

UPDATE: I think it's possible I got automatically blacklisted for making too many comments in one day.

1 Nah. He hates me too. I've been getting moderated every time I try to comment there for a while now. I just assumed that he'd blamed me for erasing all those Marty McNeely voiceovers back in '79...but if you're banned too....then I may have said too much.

2 I'll take a look.

3 Pixy, where is the moderation queue? I wondered if maybe people visiting here were having the same problem, so I just looked for it and didn't see it in the control panel.

4 Have you logged in recently, Steven?  I get the same message from your site occasionally, and it goes away as soon as I log in (back in?) to mee.nu?

There is no "moderation queue", that's mu/mee.nu's way of saying log in.  Why it would say that when I don't require such things, I dunno.  You haven't been blacklisted by me.  Neither has Muppet, though the thought has crossed my mind a couple million times...

5 The last comment I have from you is the one wondering what the "SI" in HWMNBN'DSI stands for.  Have you made others after that?

Posted by: Wonderduck at March 15, 2015 09:20 AM (jGQR+)

6 There were at least four others. I'll try logging in again and see if that works.

7 I just logged in again and tried another comment, and it didn't work.

8 I haven't a clue, Steven.  We'll have to wait for the Pixynator to work his magic!

9 Any luck now, Steven?

10 It's probably the spam filter, but I took a look and the spam filter is proclaiming its innocence.

Are you seeing that "flagged for moderation" message?  If so, I'll just turn that off, so that it's a hard switch between good comment and evil spam, with no vague in-betweeny stuff.

I only saw that message once. Now when I try to comment the comment just vanishes. It's as if I did nothing.

Posted by: Steven Den Beste at March 17, 2015 08:49 PM (+rSRq)

12 Okay, I'll turn off the moderation queue and add some logging to save all comment attempts to a file.  If the former doesn't solve the problem, the latter will at least tell me why.

13 I just tried it again, and failed again.

And I tried leaving a comment while not logged in, and got this: "Your comment has been saved, but is flagged for moderation by the site owner. It will appear on this page once it has been approved."

Wonderduck, could you go into the control panel for "comments" and see if my comment attempts are there but are labelled "junk" or "hide"?

Just now I succeeded in leaving a comment! But I wasn't logged in, and I was accessing through an anonymizer (anonymouse).

Did my IP land on the spammer list? 70.90.130.45

Also, why do I have problems with Wonderduck's page but not my own?

16 Wonderduck, could you go into the control panel for "comments" and see if my comment attempts are there but are labelled "junk" or "hide"?

No comments at all, except for the anonymouse one, of course. 

why do I have problems with Wonderduck's page but not my own?

I'll betcha it's the difference between .mu.nu and .mee.nu raising its head!  Can you comment over at Ace's place?

Commenting at Ace's is successful.

Posting at Brickmuppets is successful.

Posting at Wonderduck's just failed again.

18 Seems working fine for me, although I did log in at mu.nu separately. Not that I'm making any unsolicited suggestions or offering advice, but it worked.
