Akismet Eating All My Comments

    Is anyone experiencing Akismet going bonky today?

    For the past two hours Akismet has been eating every single one of my comments THAT I WRITE!

    Everyone else’s comments are just fine.

    I keep clearing myself from Akismet but I keep getting caught.

    I know Support is still closed — I wanted to see if anyone else is getting bitten?

    I removed 690 from my Akismet filter on one blog and found zero false positives.

    boles – try again? There was a blip which I think I have sorted out.

    I’ve been commenting this afternoon and all my comments have appeared.

    Maybe boles should leave a comment on TT’s blog and see what occurs.

    I just cleared 57 more from another of my blogs. No false positives. Hopefully, boles isn’t still having trouble.

    I love it when blips get cleared!

    Hmm…

    Not fixed.

    One comment on one of my articles went through, the other comment on a second article got Akismetted.

    I left my comment there in Akismet for now but in an hour I’ll have to fish it out or I’ll forget where to find it…

    EDITED TO ADD: Submitted a third comment on my blog and that one posted.

    Yeah, sometimes my comments are marked as spam, but really is very rare that happens.

    It seems better now. I just posted two comments and they both went through.

    Yes, jaroche, sometimes I get caught but not often and not every single comment as happened earlier today.

    boles, sure. Akismet isn’t 100% perfect, is just software. At least akismet isn’t Skynet ;)

    Welp, I just got caught again by Akismet. I am marking this “not resolved” again.

    I see your comment in my blog was marked as Spam :S, have you tried change your email address?

    Might this have something to do with the drug discussions from a couple of days ago? Keywords and all that.

    jaroche — Grr! I just posted a comment in Matt’s “December Wrapup” post that disappeared — EATEN ALIVE BY AKISMET!

    raincoaster — Usually the drug discussions get caught immediately… there isn’t a delay in identifying commenters… especially when the comments are not longer about drugs…

    I recently changed web hosting plans from Media Temple’s (dv-Rage) to Media Temple’s new Grid Server — perhaps the Grid Server has DNS properties that are Spammy?

    If so, that will be resolved later today because I’m leaving Media Temple for Mosso.

    I’d hate to change my email address, but if that’s the best thing to get this to stop happening, I’ll have to do it.

    boles – everything to the main blog is moderated. It’s there – I just approved them.

    Hi mark!

    Yes, I know the main blog is moderated, but usually you see your message there waiting telling you your message is in moderation.

    When you post a comment and it completely disappears from view, on my blog at least, it means Akismet ate it.

    Thanks!

    EDITED TO ADD: Just had another of my comments eaten by Akismet on my blog. I guess I need to change my email address.

    It’s happening to me as well!
    I can’t see my comments on wordpress blogs (I’ve just written three and none of them is visible) and akismet blocks comments on MY own blog, is it on holiady?

    boles, We have a blog in the MediaTemple’s GRID and we haven’t problemes with akismet.

    Also you would create a foward email address, so you don’t need to really change your inbox address.

    hi jaroche —

    Is your email hosted with MT on the Grid?

    I changed my email to see if it will make a difference.

    Yes, we have one mail account hosted on the Grid.

    Do you use that Grid email account for posting comments here on WP.com?
