Un-Spam Me Update: Thank you Akismet!

Thank you Akismet!

It should be noted: in less than 12 hours, the problem I mentioned in the previous post about my comments on other people’s blogs being marked as spam was quickly corrected.

Immediately after contacting Akismet on their contact page as suggested in an article I found via a google search, an Akismet tech e-mailed me. Thus beginning the process of gathering info in order to figure out the ‘whys’, testing and then applying the appropriate method for ‘un-spamming’ my comments.

If you ever find yourself in this situation, I heartily encourage you to start at the Akismet contact page and begin a dialogue with the tech team.

They will get the job done.

Thank you Akismet!

    Glad you’ve been successfully ‘unspammed’. It’s so crazy to think your lovely contributions were ending up in the same place as true garbage spam. 🙁

    I’m glad that it all worked out for you! It’s not fun doing time in spam jail.

  4. Mary J Puckett

    I’m so glad that worked out, because I couldn’t figure out how to un-spam anybody!

      Zippy, at least you tried!
      But bottom line: WP is touted as being non-techie friendly and we both know that’s a stretch.

    Thanks for that valuable information, Laura! When people ask me about this, I can refer them to your blog.

      Happy to oblige! I for one was surprised at the outcome of my search to get ‘un-spammed’
      Quality and prompt help in the internet world is rare in my experience – not to mention the fact that it was ‘free’.
