Why do I get 'comment cannot be posted' when making a comment

    For several weeks when I visit some blogs I get ‘comment cannot be posted’ after making a comment. I did ask in forum but no reply. Since posting question I have I believe discovered when this happens. It seems to be when before posting a comment the reader is asked to select what method they wish to identify themselves they wish to use.. eg wordpress or facebook or ? It is not just me because I asked other blogging friends if they ever have it happen and many said yes. I believe this is some sort of glitch that wordpress perhaps has to rectify. Thank you Diane Rawn

    The blog I need help with is hometogo232.wordpress.com.



    I don’t have a specific answer. I do know blog comments from some folks been inadvertently marked as spam. If you think this is happening to you, please send an email to support@akismet.com (support AT akismet DOT com).

    I have been told that some are having the same problems leaving comments on my blog http://countrywomanpaints.com

    I don’t see them in my spam.

    I’ll send the email to the above. Thanks.


    It is definitely to do with the sites that a commenter has to sign in under …W (ordpress) F (acebook) or ? I’ve watched every time it happens… The other ones that just default the commenter’s name etc. it does not happen… Thought I’d let you know…. Diane


    The above problem is still happening and other bloggers are having it too…. It is a deterrent for leaving comments… Can the technicians or ? check re it having to do with having to log in under W or F or ? because that’s when it is happening ONLY… Thanks
