Akismet Blocks my Comments

I don't know how, why, when, or where but apparently any comment I make is being caught in Akismet spam. Why would this happen and does anyone have a suggestion on how to get myself out?

Everyone should be assured that I've done no spamming....ever!

Actually, it's the normal nature of Akismet.. If you are a regular poster of any WP blog with Akismet enabled, Akismet will keep blocking your comments until it is fully aware of your personality

Suppose you are running a WP blog with Akismet enabled, every new comment will be blocked by Akismet until it is fully trained. You gotta keep unblocking your user's comments till your Akismet learns about your user..

Sorry Avinash, it is not the way I understand it. Akismet does not automatically throw every new comment into it's spam block. The only time comments are kept in akismet is when they were 'flagged' spam by someone, somewhere, and then that information is compiled. It is not an automatic new thing and you have to earn your way out.

That's what concerns me, someone must have flagged me for some reason.

umm... I understand your concern but sometime, Akismet blocks normal comments as well.. I faced the same situation on one of my 3 WP blogs. You may think to post about your problem at WP Support forums.

I'm sorry to laugh, but that reminds me of the joke about the kid who was so ugly, his mom had to tie a steak around his neck so the dog would play with him.

Your *own blog* thinks you're a spammer? Ain't technology grand? =:-\
