I am falsely marked as spam, what do I do?

  1. I think I have been marked as spam. I for the first time made a comment on a blog a few weeks back. Since I have never done this before I had to fill out the box with my name, email address and then, to my surprise, it asked for my website. So not thinking about it I put the website to my invitation design shop. My comment went through but ever since I can't make any comments on anyone's site. I sent an email to one of the blogs I was trying to comment on and she checked and said it had gone into Spam. She marked it as not spam so I was able to comment on her site but I am still unable to comment on any other blogs.

    The only thing I can think of, for me to be marked as spam, is that when it asked for my website I actually put my website not my blog site. Looking back i'm thinking that is what it was asking for. But it just said website. My question is how can I get unmarked as spam for any site I want to comment on. I feel like I have been unjustly kicked out of the blogging community for a simple mistake.

    Can anyone help me? Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is mydesignedlife.wordpress.com.

  2. You will have to contact Staff. Here’s the link http://
    en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ Type "Marked as spam" into the searchbox. After you use the searchbox at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to
    my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I
    would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal
    the contact form.

  3. If you left a comment on a WordPress.com site that doesn't appear and went to Spam, the best thing to do is ask the site owner to unspam it. This teaches Akismet that you are a legit commenter.

    There used to be a WordPress.com website run by Support where you could test to see if you were marked as spam, but it looks like it's no longer functional. In lieu of this, please contact Akismet directly http://akismet.com/contact/ and check the box "I think Akismet is catching my comments by mistake" and fill out the form.

  4. You guys are the best! Thank you so very much for taking the time to give me this info. I will try both options and see what happens. Thank you again so much!
