Support » Fixing WordPress » Comments immediately tagged as spam (false positive)

For some reason, comments to blog posts are cleared by Akismet, then immediately marked as spam.
I see the following in the comment history:
1 min ago – Comment status was changed to spam
1 min ago – Akismet cleared this comment
If I disable Akismet, comments still have a status of spam.
Any ideas on what’s causing this?

I figured it out. Apparently the WP-Recaptcha plugin I had installed is broken. Deactivating that plugin restored the expected comment functionality.
