FYI: If You Respond to the Mailing List, it Leaves a Comment

Just and FYI: Some of you have subscribed to receive the Georgetown Metropolitan via email. Fantastic! It’s a great way to keep up with the neighborhood news (if GM doesn’t say so himself). But there’s a little quirk in how WordPress handles these emails and GM wants to point it out.

If you reply directly to the email you receive containing the post, it will be turned into a comment and posted to the site. GM has had to go back and take down some comments that were clearly meant as private emails to him. Happily nothing too embarrassing yet, but just keep it in mind!

It’s a silly feature, and GM would love to turn it off, but he’s not sure how to. So for the time being, if you want to send an email directly to GM, send it to editor@georgetownmetropolitan.
