I occasionally receive inquiries and complaints about leaving comments on the blog... readers wondering why and/or when will their comments appear on the blog.

I moderate all comments and some days, I don’t get to it right away because real life gets in the way. For example, Friday morning, I went grocery shopping and cut the lawn before I visited the blog to moderate comments. On the other hand, if my laptop is in my lap when a comment is submitted, it gets approved (or rejected) very quickly.

Also, some people have trouble submitting comments and in the past, I suggest try using a different web browser. Sometimes that fixes the problem, which indicates that the problem is browser-related. 

After receiving another “can't comment” complaint, I finally Googled the problem and it seems that the cookies setting in the offending web browser is set to a restrict cookies, thus preventing it from accepting a cookie from the blog software, which in turn, prevents comment submissions with that browser on that blog.

So please check your web browser’s third-party cookie and privacy settings and change the settings to permit you to submit comments.

  1. I do the same thing on my blog. No comments make it to the Internet until after I have seen them. I think I have only ever rejected two comments. I have fixed spelling in a comment on occasions.

    Truly, I think that I started doing this in case someone said, "This blog is being run by ..." and outed me. Now, I think I do it because I don't trust people in general. == I'm an old curmudgeon.

    Thank you for what you do Stana!
