Apparently I'm a spammer.

    So I’ve had problems the past week or so commenting on other blogs. They wouldn’t even show up as moderation- it would just be blank as soon as I clicked enter instead of “comment in moderation”. I figured it was just a glitch, wasn’t too worried.

    Then I reblogged my post from one site to another-and I showed up in SPAM! How’d that happen? Does Akismet think I’m spam? Because I leave relevant comments, truly I do. I detest spam, I’d never do that. Or did they just take away the “comment in moderation” italics and just sort of put it in the queue without displaying the comment to the sender?

    Please help.

    The blog I need help with is justnotbuyingit.wordpress.com.

    Wrong site. That’s the one I reblogged the post from. I don’t know if it matters, but my primary one and the one I reblogged to is http://www.someonetoday.com

    Hi there, could you please contact Akismet directly, filling out the form that will appear when you type “spam” in the text field, and choosing “I think Akismet is catching my comments by mistake” from the selections:

    Thanks!

    If you reblog your own content frequently among a network of blogs, that’s a classic spam technique and will just dump you back in the spammer category.

    It’s the first time I’ve ever reblogged my own post, but I do link to my posts a lot and refer to previous ones. How do I get out of the spammer category? Don’t link as much to previous posts and I’ll move out of the spam comments thing?

    How do I get out of the spammer category?

    The only way to fix this problem is to contact Akismet and handle it directly with their support team.
