    Love the Spam. Be the Spam. The Spam I am. I do not like green eggs and ham.

    Why do I get a picture in my mind of TT standing in front of us at WordCamp singing that…

    WordPress seems to be going down the crapper imo.

    Given Brent’s avatar, I’m not about to get metaphorical here. I get deleted enough.

    In any case, I wish I had my spam options back. Veddy annoying not to be able to look through it. One poor commenter keeps getting Spammed and I can’t unspam him. This has been going on for months.

    I was referring to my frustrations with changes that have appeared without notice or explanation –this being one of them.

    I get many false positives in my spam, and now I do not even have an opportunity to check for them.

    And what is weird is that Mark told me that there is a problem with it that he is working on. Now I’m just confused.

    I’m never satisfied, this is probably my problem, but if and when things like this change, it would be nice if the staff would explain what’s happening.

    By the way, raincoaster, there isn’t anything metaphorical about my avatar. My name is Brent Roos, and some of my friends call me Rooster, and have since I was a kid. That’s all there is to that. It’s a visual symbol of my nickname.

    Not an issue: I was referring to the other commenters and the temptation to make a bawdy metaphor, which isn’t an impulse I generally resist; nothing personal.

    Check your Akismet file again; I suddenly have over a thousand comments in there, whereas a few hours ago I had none.

    Doesn’t Akismet delete some comments without going to the “check me file”?
    Also, if you have words or IP addresses set up to be blocked, then won’t Akismet just delete
    comments with those attributes right away?
    Since Akismet is always on, I have only twice been able to check the spam file to ensure that
    no real comments are being deleted. Infact I singed in one day, ten comments in SPam. I looked around the forum for 1 hour, then went back to veiw the Spam…. all gone…. Why? They were not thirty days old, but at most 2 days old. Where did they go and why could I no longer view them?
    Also, if the 30 day rule applies and I have never been away from accessing my account for 30 days, then why can I never see the Spam?
    It is all very strange and makes me wonder. I don’t get the same amount of Spam as raincoaster *whew**smile*, but I would still like to see the Spam to ensure accuracy.
