This is a weird issue, and I'm convinced it's not a ban because I know what WordPress bans look like, and this isn't it. I think I have, however, perhaps pissed off the spam filter to the point where it's logged me as a spambot. That seems to be the most likely scenario.
Basically, all comments are just disappearing. I did upgrade recently, shiny new notebook and all that (I am very pleased about this, I was languishing with my old notebook for far too long). I can still post on the forums, though. As I have been doing. So again, if it was a ban then it would have just wiped all my access. I'm completely convinced it isn't. I think this is genuinely just a silly spambot bug.
Just checking to see whether anyone else is having this issue. And wondering if perhaps I should pester the RPS guys to check their list of known spambots. If I have ended up on that list, though, they really need to take a look at how their anti-spam software works. :P It was never very good though since it didn't stop the more dedicated spambots, but it's always been a thorn in my side.
Oh, also, trying to make a duplicate post actually results in a duplicate post error, so this does seem to be a visual bug. The posts are reaching the database, but not showing. Hence spambot suspicion.
And... going to stop with the semi-consciously made Ultima VIII references, now.
So, anyone else having trouble? Comments randomly disappearing?
