Recently my blog started sending me email notifications for spam comments.
This happens in spite of the fact that Akismet is (still) appropriately marking and deleting these comments as spam.
This began when I deactivated the Nextgen Gallery plugin. (Prior to this, Akismet deleted spam and I did not receive spam comment notifications.)
I get 50-75 spam comments every day (which is just one reason why I am so thankful for akismet!). Receiving the email notifications for these is a huge pain, especially since Akismet is otherwise working properly.
Has anyone encountered this? Any ideas why this is happening?
