I have no idea what happened but everything went into the spam filter there for an hour. I fished them out and tried to fix it.
Update. All of the comments from the last two threads were going into the spam filter and then people who commented there continued to have everything go into the spam filter. I tried deleting those threads to stop this. I hope this is fixable. One easy fix is to comment with your same name and a different email. I tested that out. Another is to change your name slightly. Then you go into pending and once you’re approved, you’re good to go.
