Spammed by WordPress

I am being maked as spam for more than a week. I have written to akismet, so far no reply from them. Any ideas what to do?

I will be back soon with new posts.

Update: Problem has resolved itself. No reply from akismet though. Both me and my friend had complained to WordPress.

    Where do I get from? And can I install it on my free wordpress blog?

  4. 6 Shefaly September 17, 2008 at 7:42 pm

    strange :O
    did u use any links along with ur comments 😦

  7. 9 ish September 17, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    Um, do you quote the blogger’s original post when commenting? That makes Akismet spam comments sometimes.

  8. 10 ManofRoma September 17, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    I had one of your comments in spam, but didn’t delete it.

    I get more than 20-30 spam comments daily and which are picked up by WordPress. I simply delete them all without even checking. Make sure you dont have any links in the comment and it should be fine.

    I haven’t got any spam right now.. Akismet’s been blockin them… But you could turn on moderation for a while until they sort it out… πŸ™‚

  11. 13 Nikhil September 18, 2008 at 9:59 am

    Poonam! Poonam! After reading this and commenting, I went to check Akismet and found 4 of your comments sitting there!!! I’m soooo sorry!!! I hadnt bothered to check the spam….
    Why are your comments going to spam?? Help!! I’m sorry!!! 😦

  12. 14 Nita September 18, 2008 at 11:05 am

    I think everyone goes into spam once in a while.

  13. 15 arvind September 18, 2008 at 12:43 pm

    hey i got ur comment in my spam section .. 😦

  14. 16 Suda September 18, 2008 at 12:48 pm

    heheheh πŸ˜€

    Take it easy lady. It happens πŸ™‚ Just a Nta said, Everyone goes into spam once in a while!!!

  15. 17 Anshul September 18, 2008 at 1:15 pm

    Akismet says to De-spam the genuine comments and it will learn from its mistakes.

    To me, It looks like one of those self-healing robots that do not heal till the actress in the movie falls in love with it.


  16. 18 dinu September 18, 2008 at 1:23 pm

    more details ? like, are they links from other blogs ? ( spologs )
    tried marking spam to few of them ?
    also, u have an option to put the comment for moderation if the commenter doesnt have an earlier comment here

  17. 19 Poonam Sharma September 18, 2008 at 1:50 pm

    @Nikhil, Shefaly, manofroma, arvind: For releasing my comments from anonymity πŸ™‚

    @Nita: But I am iritated that akismet is not responding. THough I am less irritated as spending less time on blogs. BUt I have reading your quietly from my reader.

    @Reema: I have been reading and gave up commenting. 😦 There are so many other bloggers who have clearly not read this post and my comments are in their spam. So I am hardly commenting. But been reading about your business with tests, lady

    @Liju: Sad! I HAD commented on your posts! One about Onam, mostly was wishing. And I never posted any links in my comments.

    @Anshul: Buddy, thnaks for reporting agin on my behalf. I dont think akismet is learning. I have to bring my own comment in my blog from spam. 😦

    @Suda: I know but it is irritating.

    @Ish: I am doing none of such things. In fact, I am using no links.

    @dinu: Actually my blog is not being spammed, but my comments are being marked spam. And my comments in your blog have also been amrked spam. Check your spam.

  18. 20 vimal September 18, 2008 at 2:17 pm

    now, did my earlier comment go into spam??? πŸ˜€

  19. 21 Poonam September 18, 2008 at 2:29 pm

    Oh, I responded to you in my last post. That you are only blogger in my circle in whose blog my comments can be published without any hitches. πŸ™‚

  20. 22 Nita September 18, 2008 at 2:42 pm

    I don’t remember any of your comments going into spam Poonam. And maybe all these people are simply joking. Nikhil surely is.
    But I think you should write to them about your problem.

  21. 23 Smita September 18, 2008 at 6:39 pm

    Looks like Akismet ka Kismet disconnection ho gaya hehehe

    Sorry for the PJ hope the issue gets resolved quickly πŸ™‚

  22. 24 Liju Philip September 19, 2008 at 6:06 am

    Oh…i missed your comment then 😦

  23. 25 dinu September 19, 2008 at 4:38 pm

    you must send a support ticket.. and it will get fixed

  24. 26 dinu September 19, 2008 at 4:40 pm

    recovered two comments

  25. 28 dinu September 19, 2008 at 4:48 pm

    // I am being spammed //

    It should be, I am being marked as spam.. right ?

  26. 29 vimal September 19, 2008 at 7:37 pm

    Oh….and yeyyy πŸ˜€

  27. 30 Roop Rai September 19, 2008 at 9:08 pm

    i didnt get spammed by u 😦 … i feel left out.

  28. 31 Vaibhav September 19, 2008 at 11:54 pm

    Poonam, simply use a different email address and website Url when you are commenting on other blogs till this gets sorted out. And don’t leave any signatures in your comments.

  29. 32 Vaibhav September 19, 2008 at 11:55 pm

    Actually, you don’t even need to leave a different URL, you can choose not to leave any, as that is not mandatory on most blogs.

  30. 33 praneshachar September 20, 2008 at 2:14 pm

    spam spam i came back after a gap to read and i am reading this spam hope this get resolved soon and we will see Poonam back with a Bang. waiting eagerly

  31. 34 Sakhi September 20, 2008 at 4:35 pm

    Never got you comments in spam!! or aren’t you commenting on my blog anymore? πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

  32. 35 falcon September 20, 2008 at 7:35 pm

    Jai Blogspot baba ki…

  33. 36 Ashish September 21, 2008 at 11:40 am

    I had this problem a while back for a week before it got resolved itself. Rather than contact Akismet, better contact WordPress support.

  34. 37 renaissanceronin September 23, 2008 at 10:08 am

    I’m getting your comments as well. I wonder if WordPress support can shed any light on it? You could share their response with us…

    It seems to strike very “randomly,” and mostly to people in your neck of the woods… Hmmm… Maybe wordpress doesn’t like curry? LOL!

    If I was wordpress, I’d put MY comments in “spam,” for sure! ;-D

    We ain’t got much curry, but we got some “Cajun,” I guarantee! Hoo-Dawgie!

  35. 38 Nova September 23, 2008 at 3:49 pm

    Oh good gosh!!! Lemme go check!! This ways ill know if you commented or not !! πŸ˜›

  36. 39 Roop Rai September 23, 2008 at 8:56 pm

    test .. i left a comment here earlier. it disappeared? :/ why aren’t you writing, poo?

    we wait. πŸ™‚

  37. 40 Roop Rai September 23, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    ah never mind, i found me. i am up there somewhere. hehe

  38. 41 Poonam Sharma September 24, 2008 at 4:11 pm

    @Nita: I read your blog regularly. But I am not commenting because of fear that someday blogs may be blocked. I read it faithfully from my reader.

    @Smita: I have been reading your blog, lady. Be careful with your purse and your book reviews are delightful. πŸ™‚

    @Liju: you did 😦

    @Dinu: Yes, it should be marked as spam , sir1 πŸ™‚ BUt the second line in the post-it made the problem clearer, didn’t it? πŸ˜›

    @Roop Rai: I haven been reading your blog. Just as you reserve the right not to respond all your commentators, I reserve teh right to not to comment to prevent blogs getting blocked by firewalls at work (this excuse happily hides my laziness) lol

    Hey, I will try and comment soon.

    @Vaibhav: Not putting my blog URL was not helping. CHanging my email address would not make my avatar to appear. 😦 Problem thankfully is resolved now.

    @Praneshachar: I too hope that I write soon. That sounds lame , even to me.

    @Sakhi: As I told others, I have been reading your blog. Don’t worry!

    @Falcon: !

    @Ashish: I did even that, for once they were lame about it.

    @Renaissanceronin: When I wrote comment in your blog, problem had resolved itself. 😦 I have no more idea than you and wordpress support was asking me stupid questions like which blogs block you, when I repeated told them all wordpress blogs were indiscriminately blocking my comments. I finally wrote few names.

    @Nova: I have commented in your blog today, but problem had resolved earlier this week.

    @Roop Rai: Your comment is still here. See, and I replied to it above. πŸ™‚

    Good you found yourself here πŸ˜›


  39. 42 Vaibhav September 25, 2008 at 12:39 am

    In case it happens again, simply create another gravatar account with the image from your current avatar but on a different email. And then you can use that πŸ˜€

  40. 43 Nova September 25, 2008 at 4:55 pm

    Yap! Got it all fine. It wasnt spammed on my blog!

  41. 44 casestudyhelp June 12, 2015 at 2:47 pm
