I have an unusual situation. I updated my Akismet plugin when the update was first released-- 2.1.7. At the same time, my web host had some DNS problems and my blog went "screwy" (as reported by some readers). Also at the same time, a reader of my blog was submitting a comment, and when they tried to publish it, they got a blank screen. That is all they see since they tried to access my site since last week.
The DNS problem was resolved after a few hours. I then re-updated Akismet (due to the bug in 2.1.7) to 2.1.8. However, the reader of the site who tried to comment says she cannot access my blog. She has tried deleting her cache, pinging her connection, trying different browsers and different computers. All she gets is a blank screen.
I cannot figure out why this is occurring. I have for the time being disabled Aksimet. Does anyone have ANY suggestions for me? I'm completely baffled.
