The last few times one of my posts has included a link back to one of my earlier posts, the notification has been held for moderation by Akismet. This has never happened before and I can't figure out why it's happening now. I've recently changed my Comment settings to require a previously approved comment, but made no changes regarding pingbacks, notifications, etc. Surely Akismet understands my comments and pingbacks have been previously approved, since I reply to readers' comments.
Also, just now, a pingback notification from a good friend was held in Akismet. His comments have been approved for years.
Can someone explain to me what's happening and why?
The blog I need help with is piedtype.com.
