    I have been tagged as a spammer and my IP address is on Akismet's spam list, which mans any comments I leave on a site using Akismet go straight in the spam bin  big_smile

    Not being allowed to use foul language on this forum, if you really want to know how I feel about the spammers and scammers we get:


    Be warned - rude words are used smile

    Thanks to Lissie for pointing out that this had happened.

    This ever happened to anyone else? If so, what did you have to do about it?

    Crazy as it may appear Mark, you may have upset someone on the internet at some time or other.

    I can't imagine how that could be!

    The Askimet problem is commonish.

    see http://optempo.com/2007/12/23/akismet-h … d-failure/

    There's lots of good comments, including from the guy who runs Askimet.
    Contacting them is a good start.

    Good Luck, Eric G.

    Moi? Upset some one on the internet?


    Yeah, I have written to Akismet. I guess that's all I can do right now.

    You go to their site and file a request with explanation. They got back to me in a couple of days and cleared the ban. Good luck! smile
