an effort to post a thoughtful response to your articles.
But, it does beg the question, as to whether that is
actually happening. Could that be the case Meg?
Wow, this time it posted but disappeared quite soon.
Are you aware of this?
It would seem there may not be a chance of a fruitful
conversation on this subject, if comments disappear
Is your site actually seeking comments Meg?
Or is that just an unused feature?
Please see below. Thanks.
Meg, it may be this page is not loading well. Comment posts seem to publish but they disappear from view after a time. Upon returning to the page for your responses, the post does not seem to load, and the Comments section is left with a sort of non-descript statement “Loading…”. Is that normal for your site? Thank you.
