Can't Post Comments On Other Blogs

  1. prayersnapples

    I am having the same exact problem that was described in this support forum post from a couple years ago: All of a sudden, I can't comment on blogs that I have been regularly reading (and commenting on) for a while.

    From what I gathered from lessepea's earlier forum post, I need to have Support "unspam me." A couple members posted that it seemed like a random Akismet problem.

    It just doesn't make any sense, because I've been commenting on these blogs for a while now with no problem - now, when I type and click "submit" on a comment, the page re-loads (which makes me think that it worked) but then my comment just doesn't show up! (And these are blogs that I know do not require comment moderation first.) If I copy and paste what I typed before to try again, I get a "duplicate comment" message - but my comment still doesn't show? Please help, so frustrated :(

  2. I have this same problem. It happens on and blogs but not on others. I finally figured out that it's because it defaults to my paid-for domain and then hides the comment, but if I re-type my name in with my hosted URL, it works. Maybe that's your problem? It's still stupid, and telling users to talk to support is useless, because if you have a problem with dotorg but personally have a dotcom, you either can't post or they just tell you to come back here. Both parts of wordpress need to have much better communication with each other.

    This will allow our spam prevention team to look further into the problem. Thank you!
