    “”Security check: looks like you are a SPAM bot. If you think this is an error, please email the site owner.””

    Try deactivating your anti-spam plugin(s).

    I only use Akismet. I have deleted it, works fine now, but all was good untill i migrated the blog.

    Whatever it is, it’s not a core WordPress message. So it’s either coming from your plugins or your theme.

    Unless it’s something flaky your host is doing…. some kind of addon service or something….

    Well, i have deleted some plugins and i have silenced Akismet as well, still getting the error.

    I have my own dedicated.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
