Comments temporarily closed – facing Akismet spam filter failure
Something has gone wrong with my Akismet spam blocking system. I have 2500+ spam comments that have got through over the past day or two.
I will delete ALL comments received in these two days since I have no time to sort out spam from non-spam. I apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Also, I'll block comment posting for posts older than 1 day till I can figure out how to make Akismet work again. This will curtail spam till I can fix the issue.
For those who want to see hat's going on, the image below shows the problem [click for larger image]. If anyone knows a solution, please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Akismet started working on its own after 2 days and I've opened the comments.
