I’ve decided that Akismet, which is the spam filter that comes with WordPress, is a pile of steaming manure. Does anyone else have a WordPress based spam filter that they could recommend that isn’t annoying? Apparently Akismet is treating both Joe Huffman’s comments, and my pingbacks as spam. I have no idea how it makes these determinations, because it’s a giant black box. There’s no way to tell it that it’s mistaken and have it remember. There’s no white list feature that I can tell. So screw it. I think I’m open to trying something else if anyone has a suggestion.
UPDATE: Looks like they have resolved the problem.Â I’ll stick with Akismet for now.Â The help is appreciated.
