i-am-not-spamI am not spam. Really. Spam filter Akismet has taken it upon itself to mark all my comments on your lovely WordPress blogs as spam, as some algorithm in their – while intelligent and useful – spam filter has a flaw obviously. I do not send out mass-produced comments telling you that I can increase your SEO ratings or that I have secured a large sum of money that is yours for the taking if you just wire me a sum of money immediately. No. I have read your recent posts and merely want to leave you an individual comment on it.

That being said, I have emailed them asking to not block my comments (I had to sum up 14+7 to prove I was not a robot) and asked them to fix it. In the meantime, could you please mark my comments as “not spam” so that you can see my comments? Hopefully this gets cleared up quickly. Thank you!

    I have to check spam because that stupid spam filter is spamming people who I know and trust and it’s making me upset. Sometimes I think the updates make things worse. If it’s not broke don’t fix it worked fine before it was updated. Have to go see if you are spammed.😑

      Some bloggers are reporting that they are finding my comments in their spam folders. In fact, I just checked your blog, and I don’t see my comment to you from this morning, are you sure?

      LOL! And thank you! My mom used to fry Spam for sandwiches when I was a kid. Bologna too. I don’t think I’ve eaten either since college. Perhaps a sniggle or two of bologna when my daughter was young, but not Spam for sure. I recall liking it OK but not something I would purposely buy.

    That’s a pain in the can (hehe). Sometimes WP seems to go haywire. I’ll check my folder. πŸ˜€

    I know you’re not spam because I always read and enjoy your comments. I promise I will double check my spam filter. Likewise I hope I have not been spamified. 😝

    I check my spam frequently as occasionally someone I know and trust is put there. I just had the same problem and I sent a note to WP. Then within a few days the problem seemed to be gone and I thanked WP for whatever they did!!!

      That is good to hear, I’ll follow up with WP instead of Akismet, thank you Judy!

        One of the engineers asked for links to sites and I sent him about 6. The next thing I knew my comments were being posted so I am not sure what he did?

    Kathryn, this happened to me several weeks ago! WP is very unpredictable. Hope it is resolved very soon – have a great day. πŸ™‚

    How frustrating Kathryn. I’m sorry. With my math skills (or lack thereof) I’d be destined for robot-hood! πŸ˜€ Have a thriving Thursday my friend. Mega hugs.

        I’m sure that has something to do with the spam factor, but glad you got it. The first set of pins come out next week, yay! xoxo

    Come to speak of it, I did have to dig your comment out of spam the other day. But on the bright side, at least your posts are showing up on the reader!

    I just received an email asking me to rate my Akismet support experience from Stef. Apparently, Keven (WP) sent my email to them and they took care of it, not him. I wondered why I did not hear back but everything was fixed so I just let it go.
