Comments not showing

  1. The last few days I have been having trouble posting comments on (friends) blogs.

    Would anyone have any idea why?
    Has anyone else experienced the same?

  2. You're probably being filed as Spam. Check your own Akismet file to see if you're in there. If you are, un-spam your own comments on your own blog and if you can, email your friends and tell them what happened and can they do the same. After a few un-spammings, Akismet learns. you'll know you've been classified as not-spam when your comments on your own blog show up immediately.

    Do not comment anywhere else until this is fixed. The more comments you make that go to spam, the more Akismet will think you're spam.

  3. Thanks raincoaster.

    "Do not comment anywhere else until this is fixed. The more comments you make that go to spam, the more Akismet will think you're spam."

    Good point.

  4. Also if I happen to be logged into my old site http://velvethammer.wordpress.com/ comment box on WordPress.com blogs display my linked nick as this oddity.
    “nameofblog.wordpress.com/wp-admin/profile.php”
    Instead of my URL. Why is that happening?
    Then my comments are flagged as spam.

    Mind you that these are blogs I have commented on time and time again. This has only been occurring within the past week. And I am not alone in this.

  5. I contacted Askimet and all is well. My friends have seen the end of their being marked as spam too.

    Thanks Matt! :)
