    Since about 5 hours Akismet is letting tons of spam comments slipping through on all my WordPress sites despite everything being set up right and despite it states key valid and all servers up.

    Anyone else experiencing problems? (All WP version 3.4, no update for Akismet available)

    Same problem. Akismet reports all systems go, latest version etc., but no spam gets caught. I have been using it for years without this issue.

    To me it was like Akismet "forgot" how to recognize spam. So more than 80 comments slipped through within less than 3 hours but once I told it that all those comments were spam it "learned" recognizing it again.
