Sometimes during this weekend, it looks as if the Akismet sever stopped responding. Symptoms are that no spam is caught, and when I click "Recheck queue for spam", it takes longer than usual (about 40 seconds) for the request to complete, and when it returns, no spam is caught.
Do anyone else experience this (i.e. is this a problem with my blog, or is it at the Akismet server end)? If the problem is my blog, any suggestions?
