    I have a long standing, previously approved commenter whose comments are now going to spam. Why is this happening and what can be done to fix this?

    The blog I need help with is


    Mark them as “not spam” and the Akismet spam filter will learn, but it may take a few times of unspamming them before it takes and holds. This can sometimes happen when the spam filters have to make changes to counter new tactics by the spammer. They change tactics all the time.



    Thank you for taking the time to answer. Will keep going according to your advice and see what happens.


    If they are still getting caught after you approve them several times, have them contact Akismet directly at and reference the URLs of a couple of posts they commented on where they got caught.
