Akismet going nuts today?
Not having that experience here. Akismet has been accurate today.
Yah I use Human Test – it’s great!
Ah ok, maybe it’s just me… I’ve had maybe 100 comments go into spam today!
Is skip-akismet at least protecting your moderator+admin posts?
Akismet can be very problematic.
_ck_ – I’m using your skip-akismet plugin and thank goodness! At least my authors/moderators/admins are spared this.
Akismet is going absolutely bonkers on all nine of my bbpress and WordPress installs… it just started a few days ago. I thought maybe it was connected to skip-akismet, but some of the *press installs aren’t using skip-akismet and they are still having problems!
Seems there is lots of ham being incorrectly sent from bbPress as spam. This may be having a knock on effect elsewhere. I’m trying to track down the problem with these false reports from bbPress at the moment.
Thank goodness… the Akismet craziness stopped! Finally getting a “normal” amount of spam.
What an exhausting experience! I’ll never rely on Akismet again…
I have another idea for skip-akismet – an option that if there are no links in the post, don’t bother checking akismet. Not too many spammers are link-free, it would serve no point.
Wouldn’t work on the WP side where they can put URLs as anonymous but I can use the logic that if they are a member and don’t put any links in their post, just let it through.
That may not be a bad check in general for Akismet, actually. Even on WP, if a logged in member posts something without links, it should be ‘okay’.
