In response to DJA — thanks for alerting me to check whether the new comments process really does work.
Apparently it does, with just one glitch. All comments are posting automatically, as they’re supposed to. Except for one, a comment on my formal dress post, which somehow landed in my inbox, marked “unapproved.” I have no idea why that happened. Maybe there’s a delay, sometimes or always, before comments appear, but with the one exception I’ve noted (and which I don’t understand), everything you all post is getting on the site.
If any more comments end up in limbo, I’ll alert ArtsJournal. Thanks again, DJA.
