I've received at least 50 comments in the last 12 hours that Akismet has put into moderation. The thing is, these are quite obviously spam. The author names are things like "free forex trading ebook" and the comments are pages long with hundreds of spammy links in them. NONE of these in the past 2 days or so have been put into spam, every one caught by Akismet goes into moderation. A few have even made it through to approved comments, which is even more ridiculous.
This is a new development, I've been running Akismet on this site for almost a year now without much problem.
Anyone know why this is going on now?
