My WordPress comments are being blocked; Akismet problems

Not sure how or why this happens, but I left comments chez Ark, Violetwisp and Clare today, and they’re not appearing. Are they getting caught in the Spam filter?

    I had that a year or so ago, Pink, and it took WordPress/Akismet about 10 days to get me cleared. Go to this place immediately and log your complaint: https://akismet.com/contact/

    Hope you get it sorted soon, PInky.

      Just left a comment on your blog to test, and the same thing happened. Did it go straight to your spam folder?

        No! It came straight through. Replying to it via this comment. How odd. 😦

        How strange, because I don’t see it in the comments section? Do you?

        Ah..you mean on my post? No, it isn’t there and you’re right, Esme’s is the last. Your most recent comments appear on my notification list [so I’m not actually looking at the post, just the list of all comments for all of my posts].

        Oh wait…do you mean you left a comment /before/ this comment? If so, the earlier one didn’t come through.

        No, I mean this one. The last comment on your page should be mine, but it’s Esme’s.

        You were right. You were in there along with another blogger who most definitely isn’t spam. I’ll have to remember to check every so often.

        No. 😦 While I was in there checking the spam folder I had a look at the ‘to be approved’ comments and yours weren’t there so I don’t have a clue what’s going on. In theory, once I unspammed you, your comment should have gone through. At least, that would be the logical thing to happen. 😦

        It’s appearing now, but it says “in moderation”, I think it sits in the Pending folder for moderation until it’s approved…

        Yeah, I just checked the actual posts and Esme’s comment is the last. These comments, however, seem to be linked to your post and they show up in my notifications list.

        Pink, you’re almost certainly blacklisted by Akismet, so it’s pointless trying to get it sorted on individual blogs such as Meeks’. Got to the link I gave you now.

    [ Smiles ] It looks as though your issue is with Akismet.

    Have a chat with the Happy Engineers of WordPress to find out what is really going on.

    Now, in most cases, they would recommend that you contact Akismet (The biggest irony is, that it is owned by Automattic, the same company that owns WordPress).

    I hope that your issue gets rectified in a timely manner!

    Found two of your comments in my Spam alongside Cheap Car Insurance in Kansas City. I have always wanted to visit Kansas so it was at first a difficult call. But if you promise to arrange cheap car insurance if ever I visit your place then I’ll release you from Spam.
    No cheating, either!

    Gah. Reading through the comments it seems as if this is not an isolated issue. Any word from Akismet, Pinky?

    I check my spam list and every day find dozens of repetitive, stupid, or disgusting comments; and recently I found Barry, the most thoughtful and gentle commenter, there. I was going to stop checking it, but Barry and you stop me. I was spammed by all the extremist Evangelicals I told “Gay is OK”; and it took weeks to sort out. I could only get unspammed by people who commented on my blog, because only then could I get in touch with them.
