I’m appalled

Dear WordPress:

I’ve done some investigating. I started thinking it odd, that the bloggers that I go visit and leave little comments for, were not saying anything back to me.

How rude!

Well, sometimes there is nothing to say,  and a return comment is not called for. Kind of like the bit of craziness that prompts people to send a thank you card for a gift they received in person.

I’m all about manners. But come on.

The comments I’m talking about, are the kind where you ask a question, or say something so fabulous, you can’t wait to hear what they said to THAT.

I used to get a notification when those bloggers would talk back to me in my comments.

No more.

Are you ticked off at me? Are you trying to get me paranoid?

Ok. I mean more paranoid.

Is it that Freshly Schmesly  post where I got a little sassy?

I do apologize.

Please fix my notifications. Cuz it’s really hard to remember all the blogs I hopped around to.

P.S. For any of my friendy bloggers…if it appears I was ignoring you in one of your replies..I wasn’t. I was in the corner crying because I thought you were ignoring me. Which is kind of like Romeo and Juliet. Tragic and sad.

P.S.S.S I wonder if I’ve been put on a list because I’ve spoken out against WordPress. I’m contacting the lady in this article. If SHE has ever complained about WP, I think I may be onto something.

  1. Lisa..I think you are completely right…they should respond…I HATE it when I text someone and they never respond back….just a simple “ok” will do…just so I know that you read it..because you never know….I have one parent who has not been responding back to me and now I have to call….not looking forward to it….good luck….

    • Dear Someone,
      As it turns out, ALL of the bloggers HAD responded to me. And I just had no idea.
      I can be guilty of the no response to texts. Sometimes I get them, and can’t text at the moment.
      Then I forget.
      And feel horrible.
      Maybe this whole no notification thing is Karma???
      Thanks for stopping by,

  2. yo yo miss carr, why u cryin’? [please excuse my inner gansta, she’s been hanging around too long] i hope I’m not one of those who don’t appear in your feed :s ’cause i enjoy your ramblings. keep it real yo! [see what I mean? she’s got to go]

  3. Dear Lisa,

    Yes, they’re out to get you. Whenever I call WordPress names they come after me and something happens that day or the next day – it always has. The last thing was a couple of weeks ago with the stats page thing – the day after I’d had a rant about them not giving me a badge.

    P.S. Could your comments be going into people’s Spam folders? I always check my Spam because a few of my followers end up in there for some reason.

  4. Lis, I’m not sure about this. I had this prob for a little while (not getting alerts from followers) — who knows the quirks of it? I don’t know if it’s a personal thing or just one of those things, you know? Anyway hope it all works out for you soon!

  5. Here’s a hanky, Lis. Dry your tears! I sometimes don’t get notification either, but there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason for it. I think WP is just persnickety sometimes (and now that I’ve said that, I’m sure all comments in my blog will start going to spam too…)

  6. Spam lists grab you because one specific word or phrase and you stay there until someone says you’re not spam. 🙂

    It’s definitely not just you. However I don’t remember intentionally making any complaint against the powers that be before this dreadful inconvenience happened to me…perhaps I should look through all my posts carefully again…. I suspect the WP-ers are more paranoid than you though – they have reportedly been holed up together wondering what to do with us users until just a day or so ago lol!

    Thanks for the follow though, glad we bumped into each other through this! Your blog is so much fun – I’ve no choice but to follow you too hehe! 🙂

  8. Lisa,
    WordPress can be a pain – I made a post a few weeks back about not receiving notifications from bloggers. I wrote them AND I made a few tweaking in my Reader, and now I do not have time to do anything else than to read your posts. See?

In the latest scientific study, people who comment on blogs are 96% sexier than those who don't.
