I've been using Akismet for a very long time now and never had any problems.
I didn't update or change anything, but today Akismet suddenly stopped working. I'm getting a lot of spam comments that aren't filtered and "put away" as spam. Now my inbox is full of "please moderate xy comment" messages.
I checked the plugin and it says "The key below was previously validated but a connection to akismet.com can not be established at this time. Please check your server configuration."
I also noticed that my WordPress stats via Jetpack don't work anymore.
It might not just be an Akismet problem, but a Jetpack problem?
I noticed that the Akismet servers are sometimes up and sometimes down, so it might be a problem on their side. Does anybody know about any server issues?
Anybody has had any similar issues.
I have no idea what's going on or what to do especially because it happened all of a sudden without me doing or changing anything! :(
