I just found out that the verification code is working. I had the settings for comments sending me notification when a comment comes in, but I hadly ever check that particular email address and have been coming directly here to check the comments in moderation.
Today, I thought I should check that email address and there were nearly 700 notifications about comments – and that was from yesterday alone! Those comments have not been coming here though, which means I’ve won the battle and the war.
I intend to turn off the notification thingy now. I don’t need it but I’m so glad that I now know for sure that the code is working. Yoohoo!
