Can anyone tell me if the askimet site is no longer available as I just upgraded to the newest version of wordpress and keep getting this message:
The key below was previously validated but a connection to akismet.com can not be established at this time. Please check your server configuration.
Nothing has changed with my server and askimet worked like a charm on my previous version. I see from previous posts that I'm not the only one with this issue, however I don't see any solutions presented. Is askimet no longer an option to prevent spam should I uninstall it? Please advise.
