Short & Sweet…

bags-are-packed
My bags,
they’re
packed,
I’m on my
way.
Just let me go,
we’ve had our say.
Nothing changes, no-one wins.
A new life beckons, adventure begins.
Sadness lingers,  ‘tis ever true 
keep in touch?
‘tis up to you.

These last couple of days have been quite traumatic, why you ask?  Well, let me tell you a story. I posted my poem about feeling like an Alien, and it’s actually come true. Many thanks for all your comments, ‘twas  a lovely response. There you have it in  a nutshell. Your comments and mine I mean , I’m able to answer comments on my site, but for some reason Akismet is allocating my comments on your sites directly to Spam.    If I’ve pressed ‘like’ on your site it means I’ve commented but my comment just totally vanished, disappeared, kaput!!  Not even ‘held in moderation’ I ask you!!  DebLeslie, Lynn, Robin, PatSheila, Sir Prenin,  etc… (ah Andro, Oh me oh my, I’ve dotted three times, which shows how upset I am.  )  For without the contact by commenting there is no point, it’s an integral part of the two way process on WordPress, the connection.   I have queried this state of affairs with WordPress Support and directly to Akismet. but so far no joy at all.

So for now, ‘tis a goodbye, ‘til this situation is resolved, as I haven’t the heart to start up another blog at the moment.  I am actually crying.  now isn’t that stupid?   xxx

  1. Hang in there Pen and try to take it easy, gremlins and aliens are all part of the game of computer, a way out will emerge and you will be up and running soon.
    Now smile and wipe away the tears.

    • I’ve been searching on the settings to see if anyone can switch Akismet off Debbie, but so far can’t find anything. I hope so too, I’ve had a few days in the sun but the situation hasn’t changed at all. In fact others are being treated the same. Hugs to you lovely friend. xx

        • Already been there Shaun when it first happened. I was emailed by WordPress with a link to Akismet support, and after filling in a form (three times since) with all the details, no response. BUT the link you gave me was the http address I used, following that I found another conversation in the forum, and apparently this is happening time and time again. We’re told to be patient. So I’m sucking my thumb (only joking!!) 😉 xx

  11. Sorry to hear about this, Pen. I had this happen once…and then heard about it happening to another blogger friend just this week. Luckily, WordPress straightened it out fairly quickly. I hope that happens for you! It can be so frustrating when things like this happen…

    • It’s very unsettling Kathy, and it’s not showing any signs of being put right, even thought I’ve sent three queries to Aksimet. I had a break for a few days, and on returning I still can’t post on sites where people haven’t found me in their spam folders. xxx
