Akismet getting agressive these days?

Like lots of WordPress users, I use Akismet to filter out spam comments. It’s worked really well for me so far.

In the last couple of days, I’ve seen a few people comment about how it’s gotten more aggressive, and has been flagging some legitimate comments as spam. With that in mind, I dove into the queue of comments it was holding as spam, and lo and behold, there were several real comments.

I recovered them, and they should be showing up now – sorry if your comment got blocked.

I don’t really know if this is related to Akismet getting aggressive, or if I was just lazy in checking the queue for good comments. When I first installed it, it performed so well that I got zero false indications, so I never developed the habit of checking on the queue. Guess I’ll have to change that now…

  1. Speaking of comments. I’d like to request more cell phone reviews. I will be looking to drop Verizon as soon as my contract expires, but I don’t even know which cell phone to get with the new carrier because tinyscreenfuls hasn’t had a review of any in a while.
    Sorry if I’m so demanding, but it’s causing me a lot of stress. It is such a big commitment. I’m not sure if I can handle it…
