For the past two weeks, I’ve been unable to comment on anybody’s blog. This is very annoying because I am a very important person with important things to say. People count on my comments to help them improve their lives and they no doubt feel like I no longer care about them. Nothing could be further from the truth.
For reasons known only to God, the Akismet software that detects spam posts for WordPress blogs has determined that I am spam. All my comments are now being dumped into the spam section. If you rummage through that portion of your dashboard, you will find my comments – sometimes more than one as I tried to resend it after the first failed attempt.
I’ve contacted Akismet and asked them to kindly remove me from their spam list. They have not replied. We’ll see how long this takes. Special recognition goes to alert blogger Tuckamoredew, who confirmed (without my asking) that my comments were in his spam queue.
