A commenter is now being blocked as Spam on all WordPress blogs suddenly

  1. A commenter with hundreds of comments approved by the spam filter has suddenly been blocked as spam on all WordPress blogs. What could cause this and how can it be fixed?
    Blog url:

  2. Have you checked the Akismet support page?

  3. Note this > Help! Akismet is catching a regular comment as spam!

  4. I did have the commenter send some new comments one of which I 'rescued' and the other is saved in case support needs to look at it.

    I don't know yet if one such rescue will fix the issue going forward for my or for the other WP blogs that all seemed to lower the boom together...

  5. One rescue did get her out of 'spam jail' on my blog at least.

    I'm curious if there is any way to find out why a comment is blocked.
