All comments are set to moderation just to prevent someone from posting a comment that is hateful towards our friends and supporters. We have NO FULL TIME STAFF, so everything on the back end is managed by volunteers who are, from time to time, distracted by other obligations. Weekends can be even more difficult for obvious reasons. On occasion, certain comments get accidentally marked as spam and emptied even though there may be a legitimate comment included among those marked as spam. We try to avoid that, but it will occasionally occur. Best practice is to let us know after a reasonable amount of time passes and you fail to see your comment post. But sometimes a “reasonable amount of time” may be a few hours depending on who is moderating comments. Thanks!
