Missed spam by Akismet (2 posts)

    For many years Askimet served as a perfect Anti Spam plugin at my blog. Since a week Akismet missed every day a few comments.

    More Akismet users recognize this bug?

    I have to switch to another plugin and hope that Akismet will solve this soon.

    First thing to check is the 'History' section of the comment, make sure that Akismet actually cleared them mistakenly.

    Second, if Akismet did make a mistake, be sure to mark them as 'Spam'. That sends data back to Akismet.com so it can learn from the mistake.

    If after all that it still is having problems catching the spam send the details to support@akismet.com and we'll take a closer look.
