    CCF - no excuses, we're on it.

        I saw the one on Ima posts and was a little annoyed, especially since we donít know what happened to her. Thanks for posting this here. I was wondering how to report

          Yes, it appears fixed to me! I can see the delete option for comments on my blog. I also can see the edit entry on each blog entry of mine. Thank you!

            Guys - really, really sorry about the delay on this. As near as I can tell, here is what happened. When we converted the site from http to https we didn't factor in that the code that runs the user blogs was still pulling the old http related code, so Chris, our tech, had to go back over all the syntax and manually update everything to https. That took about a full working day.

            In any event, thank you all for your patience and thank you all for making an effort to bring this to my attention. I'm just sorry that it took me so long to get through my thick head that it was an issue.

              We do love it here, so as long as it works reasonably well, I can cope. It seems to be going fine for the last few days.

              Oh, I've got a couple of comment spammers for you: Jonathon Coleman and Mike Jackson.

                Nailed those spammers.

                LuckyRobin - is the delete comments function not restored? It should have been.

                  The delete comments function has been restored, (although the emojis still don't work) but the ones I report are not just on my entries, they are on other people's entries as well, sometimes on really old entries that I just happen to have commented on in the past and so get emails for notifying me there are new comments. Speaking of which, I have three new ones for you:

                    True. These don't work on the blog site.

                        I'm beginning to wonder if these spammers are somehow getting our emails. I have been getting a lot of really weird emails from different names and I don't visit very many sites besides SA and Facebook.

                            LR - got them. Are you not able to delete them on your own? I thought Chris fixed that.

                              James, we can delete comments on our own blogs. We can't delete spam we find in other people's blogs and we can't ban the spammers.

                                I like the "ban the spammers idea".
