For a while now, my reader’s comments have occasionally landed in the spam box for no apparent reason. I was able to narrow it down, however: they get tagged as spam whenever the words “socialist” or “socialism” appear in the text (neither “social” nor “socialized” trigger it). I double-checked my settings, and neither word is in the comment moderation or blacklist, and I am only using Akismet (2.5.1) otherwise, and see no way to enter blacklisted words in any other way.
Is Akismet tagging these words as forbidden, or is something else going on? It kinds of makes it difficult to discuss the news these days without these words popping up from time to time, frustrating people commenting on my site. Thanks!
