JFCatalan is having trouble commenting on blog posts. He's tried both filling out the form and logging in with an account. I wasn't sure if someone more familiar with WordPress might be able to help him.

I've found a couple of his comments in spam (don't ask). I restored one of them, as the other seems to be a duplicate.
Not sure what triggered this reaction - maybe JFC is listed in some WP-wide blacklist At any rate, if this happens again, let him contact me directly - e.g., via Mises PM or via Participate form on the VR. I really hope that marking one of his comments should be enough to prevent future troubles.

I found a third comment by Jon. My theory is he commented once, didn't see his comment, then commented two more times. We have our anti-spam set to put comments from new users to approval queue, that's why he didn't see the first comment. My guess is, if the anti-spam sees multiple similar comments in a row, it puts all of them into spam - including the original one in the approval queue.
Will have to watch the spam box for legitimate comments... Oy vey...
EDIT: hmm, there were 2 and a half days between the first comment and the second. I am sure I never saw the first one. Very strange.
