Missing Comments?

Apparently, there are rumors going around about blog comments that don't appear or turn up missing.  Of course, I wouldn't know if a comment post didn't appear, I don't have any ability to track that stuff.  I have not deleted anything and it all appears to be how I left it last time I was here.

But, in any case, if something's missing, let me know via email.  (email is in my profile)  I'm not sure if I can do anything about it, but it will be nice to know.

  1. Yes!!! Several of the comments I've posted lately have gone missing. Some have reappeared later, some haven't. It's really aggravating, seeing as I love the sound of my own voice (typing?) so much.

  2. I also have experienced wavering, disappearing, reappearing and otherwise unruly behavior by comments on my blog in the last week. While I have been known to delete comments on my own accord, this latest activity appears to be the work of some unseen hand . . . .

  3. Oh me toooo! It has been very annoying. At least I have been able to read the comments because my blog sends all comments to my email as well as posting them. It is very hard to carry on some kind of dialogue on a blog though if the comments keep disappearing.

  4. I am not missing comments, but for some reason I publish a post and it does not appear for several hours...

  5. this happened to me, but if you go back and comment on the same page it seems to bring them back. and blogger can email you when someone comments, so if it ever does dissapear you have an email copy of the comment.

  6. Ok, thanks everyone. I hope that blogger doesn't loose anything and it all comes back.

    I don't know how to archive the comments easily other than copy-paste. And I can't always keep up with that. The email notices seem to be working great so I'm really relying on that to be my comment archive.

    I don't want to loose anything, even if the comments were dissenting, rude or argumentative. It's all valuable to me in the context of everyone's self-expression, so I want them to all be here.

    Which is also why I hope that other people would choose not to delete their comments unless there was a very good reason. i.e. personal information etc. But I guess I'll leave that up to the commenter?

  7. In my case, my blog disappeared completely! But it turned out that there was just some temporary glitch in Blogger's system. Perhaps we have the same case? Read my story about what happened to my blog, and you might figure out what went wrong in yours. Thanks!
