What's Going On With Latest Akismet Update? (5 posts)

    Having recently updated Akismet I am getting a LOT of spam comments not marked as spam, at least 30 a day or more. This is more than I've ever received and has only occurred since upgrading Akismet to 2.5.8.

    Anyone else having the same problem?

    Akismet used to be great. but over the last few months, a lot of very obvious spam comments are getting through. I am having to delete spams every single day now. Not sure what the deal is, but it is getting annoying.

    The Akismet forum would be a better place to post this - as the developers will see your post there.

    When you say 'spams' do you mean 'undesirable comments' that get posted?

    I have yet to find a plugin that works better than a human.
