Akismet Eating All My Comments
Here at wp.com I use a mailsnare.net account, a public mail address (==tons of spam). Sometime ago all my comments have been marked as spam, so change my email to a sourceforge forwader account. After 2 weeks, come back to use the mailsnare account and everything almost fine, some times marked as spammer, but it’s minimal.
Thanks for that update. I will keep an eye on it with today’s comments and my new addy.
EDITED TO ADD: Changed Amdin and User email and still getting caught by Akismet. Not fun.
I came here to post the same problem but seeing as how there’s already a post about this happening to others, I’ll just add my two bits to this thread.
I suspect that at some point I must have posted something that either had the wrong word in it or a link or something and ended up being deleted as spam either in my own blog or in another WordPress blog… which means that Askimet has been “taught” that I am spam.
Over the holiday, I posted about it here:
so people would read about it and know to check their own spam bins for posts of mine. I hoped that if I and others were going into the bin and un-checking me as spam, that Askimet would be “trained” back into knowing I am not spam.
This hasn’t worked yet and have been doing it for several days now. I don’t mind having to go to my own spam bin and retrieving my own posts at my own blog but it means that I can’t be free to comment at other wordpress blogs because how would I tell them to go get my post out of their bins if they don’t as a rule, check them?
Does anyone know how long this might take or what I can do to get back in the Askimet “good graces”?
Thanks for help!!!!
I wonder if WordPress might create a “hidden” blog for just these kinds of situations? Then spambots couldn’t find it, but WordPress bloggers could, if they run into the problem, post comments there and get them approved repeatedly and that way get un-spammed? It would take someone constantly approving them, though. Just a thought.
I feel your frustration! I’m glad you posted your similar experience here. I don’t comment on a lot of WP.com blogs and on those on which I do comment all know me so I don’t think anyone would have flagged me as a Spammer by mistake or with viciousness.
That said, last night it seemed things were cleared up and I was able to post on my blog and a friend’s blog without getting Akimetted. I’ll continue to test it this morning and if everything seems back to normal then I’ll mark this thread resolved on my end.
same for me! akismet takes all my comments on any wordpress.com blog! even mine!
king – It’s always helpful to read the thread that you post in. We talk about how to deal with the matter up above.
I only wanted to leave a comment on your blog about the trillion issue thingy…but I got caught by akismet
hmm…. ok I was able to post a comment on timethief’s. Even one on mine. but got another spam akismetting killing trying getting it
If you’re talking about my main blog at tdjc.be, you need to have an account there to make a comment. I’m showing a comment caught by Akismet but not for that post and it came out of Atlanta. (And how they made it without an account, I would love to know)
If you’re talking about my old blog at drmike.wp.com, I’m showing a spam caught but, again for another post and it came out of Korea.
FYI king84 was able to leave a comment on my blog and it came through moderation in the expected way without being caught in the Aksimet filter.
TT, I see that. I’m trying to track down thte comments the poster made on my own blogs.
it seemed to work before, but now it isn’t working anymore. my comments won’t show. I’m not from Atlante, I’m from italy
1) I am having my comments (the ones I make to my own blog) eaten by askimet.
2) I received a comment on Jan 8, 9:25 AM from suershg.wordpress.com IP: 184.108.40.206 and when I checked, wordpress told me there was no such account. It was one of two that I received that day, both linked, not to posts, but to images within posts.
Perhaps the two events are connected?
king, I know you’re not from Atlanta. The only comment I have recently on my blog caught by Akismet was from teh Atlanta. I still don’t see teh comment that you say that you left nor have you told me which blog it was on.
archie – please read the thread that you posted into. The solution stated is to send in a feedback from your dashboard stating that your comments are being caught and point to specific comments that have been caught.
#2 – The user probably made a typo.
