Well, I guess this is somewhat of a rant but has this ever happened to you?

I’m not going to name names but recently I posted a comment on someone’s website (probably a recognizable name by many). The comment was related to the topic that the person had posted. It was not a complaint just an item for discussion and my personal findings on the topic. I check back after a week or so and didn’t get any response from my post which said status still pending moderator approval (only one other person commented on this person’s post, and it was a recent post, not outdated). I checked today and the comment had disappeared completely! I can’t imagine that was by accident. So much for a friendly discussion! Has anyone else experienced this sort of thing?

Yep, for sure. I suspect some who post are looking for acknowledgement of their superior skills, and the pat on the back they can’t give themselves without breaking their arm.

Yeah, I’m sure there are those like that as well.

Why do you think it was removed?

Alright, so this is an update and a bit of a weird one. On my home computer, my comment does not show up at all. If I go back to the guy’s webpage on my work computer, I can see the comment but it still shows pending from 5/2/16 when I posted it. Perhaps this is some weird tech issue?
