    On the dashboard, I read that Akismet has protected my blog from 61 spam comments. However, my spam folder is empty. Where are the spam comments, so that I can check whether there are some false positives among them?

    The blog I need help with is kokospalme.wordpress.com.

    Here known spam is automatically deleted.

    Only spam that wordpress.com isn’t sure about is listed.

    Spam on new posts remains in your spam folder for two weeks. Spam on older posts is deleted immediately unless you go to Settings>Discussion and tick the option “Don’t discard spam on old posts”.

    Most spam is listed, including plenty that we’re sure about.

    Spam from the biggest spam factories – the ones that hit WordPress.com with millions of comments – are blocked outright. That’s why your spam counter will sometimes go up unexpectedly.

    Yeah its pretty useful. I turned it off once and got inundated with spam in just a 24 hour period.
