Odd behaviour from Akismet (3 posts)

    Is anyone else having odd problems with Akismet? The vast majority of spam is being caught and junked but all day I've been having problems with one spammer who is posting two different types of spam comments.

    One lot include a link to a site and Akismet is detecting these without any problems.

    But the second lot (containing just one word: "array") are getting past Akismet and are only being blocked because I've put the spammer's name, email address, web link and IP address into my moderation list and are consequently going into my moderation queue. From there, they get marked as spam and are promptly deleted by me.

    It's just a bit weird and I can't work out what's going on!

    They should be blocked.... there is a contact form on akismet.com which you could use though if these things continue to get through. Do include the full spam please :)

    The spammer seems to have stopped now so no more "arraying" for me! Someone else I know was getting exactly the same spam and having exactly the same problems.

    All very odd
