GRRR! I put in a complaint to WordPress, worst commenting problems ever August 13, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, blogfoolery, disaster, foolishness, General Catholic, non squitur, rank stupidity, unbelievable BS.
My fervent apologies again, dear readers, I just found that Akismet has been blocking about half of all comments made and marking them as spam. Almost every reader affected has already been added to safe lists and has commented many times – for both reasons they should never get flagged as spam. I am sick of this problem and said so to WordPress. No response, yet.
I found about 35 valid comments just from this week that had been blocked. That is unacceptably bad performance, since actual spam over that period only amounted to 5-6 attempted comments.
Something is going to happen to rectify this problem. If WordPress can’t prevent so many valid comments from being blocked, then I’ll have recourse to some other response.
On another note, if you have chickens as we do, I thought you might enjoy this:
I think I like Popeye’s better.
