All of a sudden, around 3 or 4 days ago my akismet plugin started letting lots of spam through, I suddenly got over 100 awaiting moderation emails. And they've been stacking up ever since. Worse thing is, I can't seem to spamify any of the comments anymore either. If I click the "recheck queue for spam" option it times out, after about 10 minutes of tapping fingers, and none of the messages are deleted.
If I do a mark all as spam its the same. Wait for ages and nothing.
I've never had issues with akismet before so I'm really confused.
Can anyone help?
