UGH. Lost Comments from April 6

Some bad news, I’m afraid.  Yesterday I went to review and post the comments that had come in the previous day (April 6, between noon and midnight).  There was only one.  Normally there are 40-50.   Yup, something was wrong.

Complicated story, but because of a weird technical difficulty involving the back-up system, the comments were sent into the stratosphere.  There were 42 of them.  If you made a comment then and saved it, please resubmit.  If you want to compose it again from scratch, do that.  If you don’t want to bother, I’m so sorry.  In fact, I’m so sorry all around.

This has obviously never happened before in our history.  We are working to make sure it will not happen again.  Apologies!!

    The post from April 6 “The Social History Behind the Fourth Gospel” appears as a 404 – Page Not Found on my end. I have access to all other posts.

      Oh dear. Still? No one else has mentioned it. (I hope you weren’t the only one trying to access it!)

        I can’t see it either – just the 404 death sentence.

          I don’t get it. Maybe you need to refresh your browser? It’s there. I just checked yesterday and it is definitely there. 21 people have commented on it!

            These things have a way of messing with the cache on your computer. Usually (not always) the solution is to restart your computer. Hope that works for most of you. As a data point, I see the blog post just fine.

    Someone needs to invent the discipline of biblical-critical e-archaeology, apparently.
    I can see it now, sometime in the next millennium: “Treasure Trove of Lost Blog Posts Uncovered!”

    Oh, I made a comment on the 6th, but it didn’t appear. The next day there were some new protocols announced, so I assumed my comment was deemed too snarky (although that wasn’t intended, and I didn’t think it was…) and my tail was between my legs. I’m now relieved to know there’s a possibility that was instead sent to comment hades/sheoul with the rest of them, rather than me breaching rules.

    I suspect that Rose May Woods may have pushed the wrong button.
