    Hi Chris,

    I don’t know how a new Akismet API key would have modified any of the existing comments on your blog; it sounds like there might be a separate problem happening, based on the 404 you get when trying to comment.

    Have you found any extra information since you posted this that might help fix the problem?

    Hi, Christopher,

    Thanks for the response. It turned out that the new Akismet key was coincidental. The issue turned out to be a Yahoo database issue. It’s been fixed, and all is well (except for a few lost comments following a “corrupted entry”).

    Marking as resolved…

    Chris
