As I said in an earlier post today, I discovered that many of the comments I have made recently aren’t showing up on other bloggers’ posts. I don’t know if my comments are ending up in people’s spam folders or if they are just disappearing into the ether. So I reached out to the WordPress “happiness engineers” and opened up a support ticket.
That was just after 10 am my time. Hearing nothing more five hours later, I sent a follow-up inquiry.
It’s now almost eight hours since opening my first ticket and I still have not heard anything back from WordPress.
I also did a search on the WordPress Help Center and saw this:

Seriously? So I completed yet another Akismet form and got this response:
But I think “ASAP” means something different to the Akismet Team than it does to me.
So no Kudos for WordPress or Akismet from me. Not yet, anyway. Just whatever the opposite of kudos is.
