[resolved] Akismet blocking real users (10 posts)

    Beginning yesterday (2/16), every real WordPress user on my site was being blocked by the Akismet IP check on logins. Unchecking this option seems to have fixed the issue, but it seems something is not right.

    Having the same problem using his tool at
    http://www.blogseye.com/checkspam/ Any IP address I tried is coming up as blocked including my own.

    I think it's either on the API side or something on Akismet. I'm leaning towards plugin/api side of things. I think we would of heard a lot of screaming since Akismet plugin is included by default on WP.

    It's related to Akismet if you enable the debug code in the plugin Askimet returns back true which means it's spam for any IP address I tried.

    This caused havoc for me this weekend. I may look through this code, I may look at Spam Master, but from the appearance of this board a lot of people are having trouble.

    The author posted some suggestions here, but I haven't pursued the log options yet.

    I am running into the same problem as many here recently. My IP is on my white list as an admin so i didn't notice the problem until just recently. With a little bit of testing (by using my phone with a different IP) I noticed that when I click the "Check an IP address to see if it passes spam checks" link in the options page,the phone's IP passes. Of note, there is a significant delay (3-5 seconds) part way through the check.
    If I try to register with the phone, I get the error message that tells me to request having my IP added to the white list. Just thought that might be useful information in troubleshooting the problem.
    I don't recall doing any updates/new plugin installations/major changes to the site prior to this problem.

    Thanks Keith, hope you will find a way to involve Akismet again. I am receiving a lot more (Spam) registrations since I disabled the Akismet check.
