I have a friend that is a regular commenter on my blog, but for the last several weeks she cannot comment at all. It will not permit her to enter a comment. A long time back she went into my spam from time to time, but has not for a long time and now cannot comment at all.
Can anyone help?

I presume other readers are able to post comments? Does your friend have a WordPress.com account, and is logged in when she tries to post comments? Or is she logging via Twitter or Facebook through the comment form?
She is logged in, but does not have a WP account.
Does your blog require commenters to be logged in before they can post comments in the "Discussion" area of your Dashboard?
Yes, it does.
Is the post she's trying to comment on older, and the comments possibly closed already? Are comments allowed on the post that she's trying to comment on? Trying to eliminate the simple stuff...
My comments don't close.
It's possible the IP address of your friend's computer is flagged as a spammer by Akismet, and is blocked because of it. Does she have access to a different computer outside of where she's trying to comment from to try again?
She was able to leave a post until recently.
If you could provide a link to your blog or the post itself, it would be helpful to look at.
It is anything I post on my blog http://cindyiscrafty.wordpress.com. She cannot comment on any post.
Please help, I have a suspicion this may be why my comments have dropped off on my blog.
The blog I need help with is cindyiscrafty.wordpress.com.
