I’ve gotten a few questions from readers about whether I am receiving their comments. I think I am seeing all comments that are sent (they are moderated first before they appear on the blog to prevent spam, privacy matters, etc.) And I almost always will reply with at least a thank you for the comment. So if you do not receive a reply, it means either (1) your comment did not go through for some reason (don’t forget to click on Post Comment) or (2) you did not ask to be notified of follow-up comments (again, you need to click on the box under the comment box that asks whether you want to receive that notification).
If you are doing this and still not receiving a notification that I replied, then please let me know. I will contact WordPress to report the problem.
