Ummm...Yeah. So...it turns out that when you delete comments from the published folder, you also delete them from the blog itself. Didn't know that. Doesn't make sense to me, because once you've posted them, why are they still tethered to the published folder? Wish I knew that before I deleted the last 50 or so comments...
anyway, I am working hard to find these comments again and re-post
them. I'm taking this very seriously, since if people are nice enough
to take their precious time to read my blog and post a comment, they
shouldn't get said comments deleted.
apologize to Dreki, who has posted quite a few comments recently, and
after a bit of a hassle. I'm working hard to get those back. And I apologize to Diane, who lost the most comments. I'm
sorry this happened.
So please rest assured everyone
that I am working hard to resolve this problem. If you have any advice
to give about how I can do this, please leave me an email at
sb[at]stevenbelanger.com, or leave a comment below. I promise not to
delete those, too.
If you've commented on my website since February 2013 (!!!), and if you still have a copy of it on your computer somewhere, please either send it to me and I'll take care of it (though I'd rather not have to do that), or just re-post it yourself if you don't trust my computer savvy. I wouldn't blame you. If you don't want to do anything because you're as disgusted as I am with the whole thing, I wouldn't blame you for that, either.
