Below is a comment, which I tried to make on Panos’s latest post regarding WordPress.com behaviour, but it too went to spam, (#comment-51499):
Sorry for a long comment. I am pretty disappointed by the behaviour of WordPress and that silly Akismet. Akismet marked my Google Apps email as spam, which I figured very late –after I was unable to post in forums (even for the help why it was happening) and friends’ blogs. When one of my friend told that he got my three comments into the spam folder (those weren’t, he admitted), I got shocked. I contacted support and got a response after 7 odd days. Okay, time taken doesn’t matter. Their response was irritating. They said that Akismet would learn soon, try commenting again. I tried but failed. Akismet is not so smart and the WP.com support too. I’ve neither commented on the blogs I read for months nor I am writing to my blog. I have changed my email to non-google apps, and trying to comment. Let see if it succeed. If it fails, I’ll do, what I do after a comment (contacting the author).
This again couldn’t work and I don’t know how to contact Panos, so I decided to post my problem to WordPress.COM forums using my alternate account. And see what happened: Unable to Comment/Post in Forums –WordPress.com Forums
Seriously, I am helpless. What should I do now?
Blogs at which my comments got disappeared are:
1. Blog Of Reflections
3. One Cool Site
4. WordPress Blogging Tips
5. Matt on Not-WordPress
6. Absurd Old Bird
and many more…
