Pingback notifications being held by Akismet

    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



    It just happened again. Only this time the notification email didn’t even include my Gravitar. It used an Identicon instead, as with anonymous commenters. I’m perplexed.
