Previously moderated commenters are ending up in Spam or worse

  1. Is anyone else having this issue? My comments are set so that previously approved commenters don't go through moderation unless they include a hyperlink in their comment. However, several long standing commenters are having their comments held in Spam ( no links in their comments) and some are presumably being 'eaten' by Akismet and not even getting to Spam. The commenters haven't changed their email addresses so why is this happening?

    The blog I need help with is zebbakes.com.

  2. Hi there,
    Th issue is known to Staff who are working to address it. Everyone who is having issues with legitimate comments or forums posts being caught as spam should fill out the Akismet contact form so that they can look at your account.

  4. Thanks for spreading the word about each of them contacting Akismet Staff. :)

  5. I'm having the same problem, so I will file a report. Thanks, Joanna, for starting this thread, and thanks, timethief, for the info!
