    Hi,

    I am getting this error :

    ""Security check: looks like you are a SPAM bot. If you think this is an error, please email the site owner.""

    Since the time i moved from old host to new, i am getting this error.

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    Try deactivating your anti-spam plugin(s).

    I only use Akismet. I have deleted it, works fine now, but all was good untill i migrated the blog.

    Whatever it is, it's not a core WordPress message. So it's either coming from your plugins or your theme.

    Unless it's something flaky your host is doing.... some kind of addon service or something....

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
