Comments, Spam, Loyal Readers, and False Positives
The many interesting comments left by our informed readership help make Credit Slips one of the best places on the Internet for informed discussion about debt and bankruptcy issues. The many spam comments make Credit Slips a less useful resource.
If your legitimate comment disappears, I apologize for that. You might try authenticating with a Typepad account or rewording the comment slightly. The anti-spam service is supposed to be a learning algorithm and should get better over time. We do not screen out comments because they express a different opinion or criticize a blog post. I do screen out comments that make it through the spam filter but are still spam (e.g., "Very informative post. Click here for scammy debt relief services you don't need.") I also will screen out comments that are vulgar, profane, or are just personal attacks, but I can count on one hand the number of times we have received those sorts of comments since we started the blog in 2006.
