    This message means what it says, for some reason your WordPress isn’t able to reach in order to validate the API key (and likely to check comments for spam).

    Your hosting provider is generally in the best position to track down why your site is not able to make HTTP calls to any more. Common reasons for this include a firewall/proxy/router that is blocking the request, PHP configuration that disables HTTP calls.
