    My dashboard has been saying

    29 Spam comments blocked by Akismet.

    for, oh, about 5 years now. I haven’t enquired about it before as mine is not a high-traffic site and I get relatively little spam. However, it has been increasing in volume for a couple of months, and just this morning I got a spam email that showed the sender WAS ME, when of course, it wasn’t! I’m using the latest version of Akismet (Version 4.1.1) and Contact Form 7 (Version 5.1.1).

    So why has Akismet’s message

    29 Spam comments blocked by Akismet.

    not changed in years, and why am I getting spam?? Under the settings I see

    PAST SIX MONTHS 0
    ALL TIME 29
    ACCURACY 100%

    all of which is nonsense.

    I upgraded recently to Jetpack Premium…do I need a new API key or something?
