The spams are appearing in the spam-filter-comments and also no emails for me. BUT when I mark them as spam, they appear again, with the same IP and more or less the samme URL - but not quite the same.
Looking closely, the URL' s are different from each spam, but it is the same 7-8-9 IP-adresses. Also the email-adresses are different from each time.
Whem I choose spam (in the spam filter comments) there is no learning, that this is spam, since something very similar appears again 20-50 times a day. What the spam have in commen is the same 6-7-8 IP's and also 'livejournal' and 'bravejournal'. So I was hoping that by chosing these as spam (in the spam-commentsarea) they would not appear again, but the do.
That is why I believed that an active akismet with an API would learn better.
I followed your advice and marked from yesterday individually each spam as spam (actually 'delete permanently¨ (in the spam commentarea)) and maybe that is better, but not so far.
I will go through all comments today and all spam will be deleted in the non-spam area, but there are quite few.
Be aware there are no spam-comments in the real comments on the blog, but 10-50 every day in the spam filter and those I would learn akismet to be without, so by learning, they spam does not even appear as spam but are rejected before spam. (unless there is a new kind of spam-comment off course)
