Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

Flagged as spam?

Whenever i try to comment on our family blog 'familibilleder' im flagged as spam. Really anoying. How do i get un-flagged?

Unfortunately we don't run the spam filters ourselves, instead that's farmed out to Akismet. That's nice for us because it's easy, works well -- and works across sites. Unfortunately it makes it tough for specific people to be unflagged. Sorry about that.

Hm.. Not a cool answer. We have a paying account which is now pretty annoying since we are all flagged as spam. Could you give me the contact info at Akismet please?

No answer??

I think with the spammers getting more annoying Akismet has trouble keeping its filters up to date. Also, the captchas are getting sometimes almost impossible to solve… :(
I'd suggest to exclude plus and good standing long-time members (at least a year of membership, at least some public images uploaded and more than 10 comments of which none has ever been flagged as spam) from the spam filtering and captchas as a try and see what happens.

Is there any way to unflag me as potential spammer? Typing secrets words when adding comments is driving me really crazy.

Thank you.

+1. These captchas a pretty tough to solve and it totally removes the fun from commenting in the long run.

let's call it the "killing me softly effect".
