i'm done commenting
update: i asked akismet to allow its spam filters to let my comments through, via its contact akismet page. very quickly after that, i received an email from mark, telling me they'd made the adjustment. just went around a bit right now, and it looks like my comments are getting through again. :) thank you, akismet. well done.
well, maybe i'm not done with all commenting. but i feel quite deflated right now.
went on my usual bloghopping, leaving comments on other people's haiku poetry sites, and i find that on most wordpress sites, when i submit my comment, it just disappears into the void.
not a comment under moderation. it's just gone. the page just reloads.
and after working on response after response, i think i've had it for now. quite a lot of the joy has gone out of blog visiting for me because of this.
so for now, i'll stick to commenting on blogger blogs. at least for the next few days.
thank you for visiting this haiku poem blog.
