Is there any way I can list websites that are okay so that they don't go into the spam filter? Something like a whitelist? A blogger (on wordpress.com) whose comments are always fine and who is a genuine blogger, always gets grabbed by Akismet in any of my blogs he comments, and I really don't understand why! He has two different blogs, and has tried commening from both and it happens nearly every time. (One of his blogs always gets put in the spam filter, the other does most of the time - more frequently in the last few days. And today, he even included my name in his comment!) So I have to remember to check the filter everyday to see if he commented, which really is crazy!
I realise that Akismet is, otherwise, doing a very good job.
I have my blogs spam filter set to 'don't delete old spam comments' or whatever it's called. And I use moderation on all my blogs. But of course, as his comments go into spam, I am never notified about them. I see there's a blacklist option, but there doesn't seem to be a whitelist - or am I missing something?
The blog I need help with is absurdoldbird.wordpress.com.
