If you’ve been commenting on our posts but can’t see your comments, or if you receive a message telling you that your comments are being instantly deleted, I promise it’s not me doing it. Yes, sometimes it takes me a few hours to get to the moderation queue, but I do my best to find your comment and get it published.
The problem: We’ve been having some issues with our moderation program called “Intense Debate.” It has been instantly deleting good comments from established community members, and a lot of folks like you are getting alarmed. We do not delete comments unless they are profane- or insane (spam).
Here’s the deal: Intense Debate is a very nice program, but it doesn’t seem to like Facebook comments and certain others. The good news is that after hours of trying to find solutions, I have learned that we can “white-list” users if they post from their Intense Debate OR WordPress account. The long-term solution is to create one of these login accounts so I can white-list you, and you never have to wait for your comments to be moderated.
I hope this is a good solution for you, and apologize for the inconvenience.
