i got this message on my comment's dashboard:
Akismet has detected a problem. A server or network problem prevented Akismet from checking 7 comments. They have been temporarily held for moderation and will be automatically re-checked in 9 hours.
then i checked the akismet setting, and appeared:
The key below was previously validated but a connection to akismet.com can not be established at this time. Please check your server configuration.
and the server connection says:
