    Some comments to my blog appear on the blog and others don’t. The ones that don’t are from “unverified visitors”. How do I verify them? I want all comments to appear on the blog. Any help is welcome!

    The blog I need help with is greensportsblog.wordpress.com.

    I am not clear what it is that you are reporting. Please post again and tell us what you mean by “unverified”.

    NOTE: The vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam. Our reality is that over 80% of all so-called comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day are spam. Spam comes in waves. There are human beings who get paid to post spam. There are robotic programs that post spam. Spammers are always trying to find new ways to get their links on our blogs.

    Hello Timethief: Thanks so much for the quick response! Tell you the truth, I’m not sure what I mean by an “unverified user”. Here’s what happens:

    1. I receive an email that someone has made a comment. The email includes a) who that someone is (their email address), b ) the comment itself, and SOMETIMES c) the words “unverified user”. When that last line appears in the email then the comment does not appear on the blog. When it doesn’t, then the comment does appear.

    Below is an email I received, notifying me of a comment from, it turns out, my sister-in-law. Note the “unverified user” verbiage at the bottom. I blocked out her name, email address and website info. Does that help?
    Somehow I need to figure out how to get comments to appear whether they’re from verified or unverified users. Also I’ve never verified a user so I have no idea how one ends up in one column or the other. Confused. Thanks AGAIN for anything you can do! Lew
