The vast majority of comments to any blog I would expect are spam engines. That is why I make sure that every comment gets approved before you see it. However I do check all of my comments (or at least, those that the Spam engines do not catch) and post them immediately… even if I do not like what they are saying.
This week-end I got a notification that there was a comment waiting for approval, and I could see by the notification that it was spam. I opened the app on my phone, and wrongly assumed that the comment that came first would be the one I had been notified about. I blindly (or nearly so) marked it as spam, never to be seen again.
Unfortunately I was mistaken, and the comment that I blew away was not the most recent one. I accidentally marked a perfectly valid comment as spam. Mistakes happen, and I apologize. It was the weekend after all! 🙂 No excuse, but accidents happen. Sorry!
