Akismet has been marking all my comments as spam lately. I’m not entirely sure how I ended up on the shitlist, but every place that I post eats my comments, never to be seen again

Be on the lookout for comments from “Heliologue” in your caught spam queues if you use Akismet. They don’t get marked for moderation; they simply get eaten. Please de-spam my comments.

    Done. I wouldn’t have spotted it if you hadn’t have said anything :/

  2. Ben says:

    I tried sending you an e-mail last week but I’m not sure you got it. I figure this way, anyone who bothers to look at my blog will have a look-see.

  3. Ben says:

    On a more pertinent note, this seems to be the fatal flaw of Akismet: there’s really no way to overcome a blacklisting without a concerted effort by third parties, who probably aren’t checking their queues anyway due to sheer volume.

    Appropriately I think your email was eaten by Gmail’s spam filter XD

  5. Jeff says:

    I don’t actually use Akismet, so if a comment of yours was eaten at my place (I can’t find one), Spam Karma hates you, too

  6. Ben says:

    I somehow managed to get on a RBL, it would seem. So both SK and Akismet probably hate me.

  7. rob says:

    FWIW a recent comment got through without even going to the moderation queue.

  8. Ben says:

    I saw that. Hopefully the tides have turned in my favor.
