Screening?

One comment went screened, and I had specifically turned off screening.

Now when I again changed the setting, it changed back to screened after I saved, then tried again and it turned to screen anonymous comments - and the third time it seems to have stayed on no screen.

We shall see what happens. I hope everything works now, but I will unscreen any comments as quickly as possible, if LJ insists on being difficult.

My comment in the prompt post was marked as spam :(

That's annoying. We didn't even get a notification that you had commented or that anything was marked as spam :(

The no-screen setting was still there this time, so that should not be the reason. The absolutely only other possibility is this setting:

"Comments and messages from users identified as potential spammers will be marked as spam and moved to a special section."

Which is on by default in all accounts. I am hesitant to turn that off, as there has been a lot of spammers, and it has never been a problem before that comments are marked as spam. However, I will try turning it of for a few days and see how it goes - if spam comes in droves I have to turn it on again.

Did you have a link in your comment? That sometimes make LJ screen posts, but it should not throw the comment away completely.

Hah, turning off the spam setting made LJ remove my setting that everyone could comment, even non-registered users. Turning THAT setting back on made LJ reset the spam setting. Grrrr. Toggling both one more time seems to have worked.

But it then turned on IP logging of everyone. Another toggle of all, seems to have worked. WTF LJ, why can't you let me decide what my settings should be instead of changing them for me?

Yes, I had a link in the post. I'll just repost it on dreamwidth.
