Spam filter not working well

  1. A large number of spam comments -- all from email addresses with "Facebook" in it -- have been coming through for the past few days. Akismet seems to not be catching them, for some reason.

    The blog I need help with is 06880danwoog.com.

  2. I am having the same problem. My blog is http://hikingangelesforest.com/

  3. Hi there,
    Are you bloggers marking the spam as spam rather than deleting it? If you mark it as spam you educate Akismet. If your delete it that does not happen. If you think it's a HUGE issue you can report directly to Akismet Staff. http://akismet.com/contact/

  4. I am marking it as spam. Right now, Akismet does not seem to be learning.

  5. Spam comes in waves and I guess there's a storm out there. If you think it's a HUGE issue you can report directly to Akismet Staff. http://akismet.com/contact/

  6. I've marked about 20 as spam so far. They show up about every 30 minutes. askimet is stopping about 5 times what is getting through.

  7. It sounds like Akismet is working hard.

  8. Thanks. I've marked "Facebook" in the Comment Blacklist box -- that should stop it (I hope!).

  9. Good move! Now Akismet will know to sequester them but it may take some time for that education to take place.
