Our friend PC Doctor writes to BFP…
I’ve noticed your BFP website is in the nasty habit of grabbing submissions that include html code,never to see them again!
These submissions get lost in cyberspace, and obviously are not being moderated by you, or we’d see at least a few of them, complete with html code doing its thing.
This glitch, if it is a glitch, can become tiresome and frustrating. Please attend to the malfunction, if it is a malfunction, or give us a warning re. no html code, if that be the case.
Other submissions with html code, go thru just fine, but your submissions computer is developing selectively-greedy bad habits, perhaps unknown to you! check it!
I’ve been writing html code long enough to make few mistakes. In fact I made the first screw-up today,and left a message (one of three comments under…..??) to please remove the first screw-up (it’s followed by comment no.2 which is ok) and my appeal for removal..the 3rd. comment.
Looking fwd. to smoother, less prone-to-grab submissions.
Hi there, Doc.
For those BFP readers who like to leave comments with HTML code in them – usually website links etc. – these are usually dropped to the moderation list where they wait for one of the gang to approve them.
This is necessary because we receive at least a THOUSAND “spam” comments per month from robots – wanting to post everything from auto rental ads to viagra sales. These all contain HTML code, so the computer grabs them for vetting.
No way around it folks – unless we adopt a registration policy for commenters, which we are unwilling to do.
So, if your comment doesn’t post right away, please have patience and we’ll get to it as soon as we can.
