“Hey Syp!” or “Syp, Lookie Here!”

Hello S-to-the-yp. So I have been posting comments on your blog, but lately they have stopped showing up. I think I might be caught in your spam filter. Could you look into that for me pretty please?

P.S. while we’re at it, I seem to be having the same problem with:

P.P.S. it seems the problem lies with ALL WordPress blogs. No other platforms have plugged me as a spammer.

      Yeah I seem to be having that trouble with quite a few blogs. Just sent a few mails out to some people. Syp didn’t have an email listed anywhere. First I was going to post a comment on his “About” page, and then I realized the sheer irony of that endeavor.

    Yup, you were flagged as spam, you should be good to go now. No idea why it flagged you.

    Yeah, you were in my spam folder… I don’t know how Akismet works, but sometimes it likes to pick on particular people. Sorry about that!

    It looks like Akismet has flagged you as spam for some reason. It’s happened to me before.

    Got to http://akismet.com/contact/ and let them know about the problem. They will sort it for you!

    The people responsible have been flogged, tarred and feathered and shall not bother you again under pain of death. Really sorry about that

    @Tipa – Probably cause I didn’t take a shower this morning.

    @Syp – Thanks buddy!

    @Lono – Flogged, tarred and feathered? I think you may have gone a little overboard, but thank you. I feel the love!

    That has happened to me before. Twice, actually. You (for whatever reason) get flagged as spam in the central akismet database and it is across all blogs.

    Click the 4th radio down “I think Akismet is catching my comments by mistake” and write them that you’re not a spammer. Should be fixed in a day or so.

      Oh that is very helpful man, thank you!!

  8. January 17, 2011 at 8:26 pm

    The only item from you in the spam folder was an item you stuck a URL in, a URL which had the phrase “filing your taxes” which is a common red flag for Askimet. Otherwise your comments from last week all appear unless you wrote more than 4 comments.

    • January 17, 2011 at 8:29 pm

      Ah OK! That was a reference to Murloc Parliment’s post on filing taxes. Alright, I guess I am off the hook on your blog then!

  9. January 17, 2011 at 9:01 pm

    Mine didn’t flag you. Am I missing something? ZOMG h4xxor spammer! :D

    • January 17, 2011 at 9:05 pm

      Uh, u bai gold?

  10. January 17, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Well, that’s odd. Yeah, Akismet totally took you out. It should be fine now.

  11. January 17, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    I don’t have the proper blog permissions to do anything about unapproved/spam comments on CSTM. If you send an email to Goldenstar, I’m sure she can sort that out for you.

  12. January 17, 2011 at 11:38 pm

    Sorted now, very strange.

  13. January 18, 2011 at 12:54 am

    You were in my spam filter as well. I’ve gotten out of the habit of checking it regularly, since real posts that wind up there accidentally are a rarity. Fixed now.

  14. January 18, 2011 at 2:12 am

    Go on.. cross me out too!

    Damn spam filter… it has been acting up lately.

    Still not as bad a Google mail, which spams 1/2 of the emails from me… to me…

  16. January 18, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Thanks everyone, much appreciate and sorry about the trouble. Hopefully this will sort itself out soon enough.

  17. January 18, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    Oh and Gordon, Spinks, you were both in MY spam… just retrieved your comments…

    Something reallllly fishy is going on…
