For some two years it seemed like no comments were coming in. I thought my site just lost people who bothered to write comments. Suddenly in the last day after updating a WP plugin, I’m getting comments on various posts. I’m now suspecting that it was blocking comments for the last few years and if I see comments stop again, may have to disable this particular plugin.
So I apologize to anyone who’s been trying to post comments for the last few years with no success. I honestly didn’t know that this was a problem.
