  6. WP gets carried away throwing some comments in the ??? folder. All is well now. Usually I am more ahead of WP. I get sent a need for approval on occasion myself. Most of the ones missing just needed my approval. One would think by now those who have posted comments or Pings before now would be put through. I think it’s the LINKS that set off the DOGS & pulls them from approval. This week was strangely weird. Not able to check before now. Will be more due diligent in future. j.k ❣
