Disqus flagging legit comments as spam…

It happens once in a while that Disqus will flag a legitimate comment as spam, but I only just discovered that it’s happening far more often than I realized, and that I’ve been falling down on the job in approving them. Sorry.

I think I’ve fixed things so that the notifications about those flagged comments will be more prominent, so I can act on them immediately. (Disqus refuses to send me only notifications of posted comments that have been flagged by readers, or of comments that have been tagged as spam and might need approval. If you want to get those notifications, you have to take notifications as well of every comment posted. Which is a lot on a site like this, so those comments I need to take action on have been getting lost in the mix.)

Disqus will allow me to whitelist commenters so their comments are posted immediately, even if Disqus might otherwise flag them as spam and hold them back for my approval. I’m going to get moving on whitelisting all subscribers. So now might be a good time to subscribe if you haven’t already done so. See the links in the lefthand column. If you’d like to subscribe at $5 or $10 per month, you’ll find links for those levels at the bottom of this post. If you’d like to subscribe in an amount other than $1, $5, or $10 per month, let me know, and I’ll whip up some links for you.
