The Secret Recipe of Comment Spam Comments

JenT:

Because it bears repeating.

It seems there’s been a recent uptick in the number of spam comments getting through Akismet’s filters. If you see comments like these waiting for your approval (i.e. *not* already in your spam folder), mark them as spam and only spam. Do not put them in the trash folder.

On the other side of the pond, UK users who are customers of BT or Sky broadband have been finding that their comments are inadvertently being marked as spam. If you are a user that fits that description, please fill out the contact form on the Akismet website or email the folks at Akismet support (support AT akismet DOT com) and make sure to mention that you are a UK community member and your Internet Service Provider.
