I have been Spammed. Am I in your Spam Box? Karin, Marina, Brenda?

I have left various comments upon some of your blogs today, but upon some of them I have been sent into your Spam boxes, I have been retrieved from two blogs, 

Other blogs I left a message on are which I disappeared are .. 

Spiritual Awakening Can you retrieve me Karin please.. 🙂

http://marinakanavaki.com/ Marina hope you can find me 🙂

http://friendlyfairytales.com/  Hope you can find me too Brenda. xx

I have contacted Askimet and hope they can sort it.. it appears also my own spam box isnt getting any spam at all.. and yet I would get 100’s a week..

I know before my Spam box went quiet I was also unspamming regular commentors from WP.. as I used to check my Spam box regular until it became  so quiet.

Is anyone else getting this problem?

    Yikes! I just empty my spam a couple of times a day without even checking. I did check initially, but I now get so much spam that I gave up bothering to look given that I’d never had a genuine comment appear there before. The main problem I hear reiterated time and again is email notifications failing. Barely a week goes by without me coming across at least one blog owner who complains of that issue, and I’ve experienced it myself too.

    Hope it gets sorted Sue. H ❤

        Update: since leaving my comment above, I have had a comment blocked by Akismet three times on my friend Karuna’s site, where I comment regularly. Akismet confirmed to her that it was their error. They are having a bad couple of days methinks. H ❤

          It seems that way Hariod.. they apologised to me in an email.. and said all now sorted.. Sorry to hear you have also had the same probs… My spam box appears not to even be getting Spam.. and has been empty for about 2 weeks which is unusual as I get loads usually .. Maybe I should ask them why that is? but I dont wish to upset the apple cart just yet.. I await tomorrow to see if when I do my rounds my comments appear.. At least now I know where to go.. I had a merry-go-round trip trying to contact them initially xx Hugs Sue

    Yes, there was a comment in my spam box today from you. I didn’t even know how to check that until now. I have approved the comment now. Thanks.

    And when I just checked my spam box, I found another false positive in there.
    Which I would never have discovered if you had not pointed me to my spam box. There is always something good even in seemingly awkward situations.

    [ Smiles ] No, I am not having that type of problem, Sue.

    Did you piss anyone off lately?

    When I read this, I immediately checked my WordPress spam box and thankfully, you are not in there.

    Hopefully, Akismet should sort it all out soon!

        [ Smiles ] You are most welcome, Sue.

        For the record, Google also hate it when people add links to the comments section of other people’s posts.

        You have learned the hard way that the bots hate it a lot when people leave links in general in the comments thread.

        You are welcome, Sue.

        I consider you a friend; so responding is to be expected.

          Thank you Renard.. and I know you know lots of things technical about WP ect.. I did even consider asking you for advice if I got stuck.. but I followed a series of links to get to an email address and form to fill out my complaint.. It took me the best part of an hour.. But I recieved an email back saying It was now sorted.. although as yet I have not been blog hopping to find out.. Fingers crossed 🙂 And I will bare that advice in mind in future .. Thank you

    2) Gravity Forms:

    If you use Gravity Forms, please make sure it is up to date. There is a security flaw that allows files to be uploaded to your site. On the weekend I discovered that every single site I manage that had an older version of Gravity Forms had been compromised. Fortunately, I don’t think they did anything other than upload a couple of files, but the risk is huge! This post from Sucuri explains the exploit: http://blog.sucuri.net/2015/02/malware-cleanup-to-arbitrary-file-upload-in-gravity-forms.html.

    Okay, I’m way behind here. How do I find my spam box? I hate when things get bad and I have to take time off from reading your blogs Sue. Therapy is getting easier and I’m getting more movement in my shoulder with less pain (at least that’s what I tell myself) so I’m playing catch-up now. But I think I should check my spam box, wherever that is. Hugs, Angie

      Thank you Angie, Ok first hover your mouse over the top left corner of your page where it says MY SITES.. look down and you will find a list, Click COMMENTS.. on the top of that page you will have PENDING APPROVED AND SPAM and then TRASH… click on Spam, you could have thousands in there just scroll down through each page you turn the pages by clicking the numbers either at the top or bottom of the spam page.. The instructions for clearing spam is on the page with Bulk actions etc..

      I am so pleased that your shoulder is gradually healing.. sending healing thoughts and Love xxx Hugs Sue x

        thanks also for the healing thoughts. They are working, as I am working to get the shoulder strong again. Movement is easier and less painful each day.

    Hi my sweet friend Sue,Feel so sorry about this annoying situation you face.Please have a quick look at my following post to see what I had been through.Actually,you had added it to your Likes,you sympathised with me :

    https://dodagrivas.wordpress.com/2014/04/02/sorry-my-wordpress-friends/

    And please read what Jackie had said and the thread of the comments:
    “This is not a problem on your end – it is a problem with the spam filter Akismet. Why it does this I have no idea! It’s been an ongoing problem on WordPress. People need to check their spam folders to see if your comments are there … ”

    Hope it is soon sorted out Hugs & more ❤

    Two days ago someone’s comment in my notifications disappeared in front of my eyes. And every time he tried to reply to a post, his comment disappeared. I contacted Word Press and they looked into it. The said sometimes Askimet labels something as spam that isn’t and to look in the spam box and mark them as not spam. It was strange because the comments weren’t at all spamy and the person responds to my posts regularly. About a month ago a comment disappeared as well. It isn’t in my spam or trash box now so I don’t know what happened to that one.

    I leave comments on many posts but only get a small number of responses, I tend to have a collection of waiting confirmation, it is a bit saddening, maybe I go into spam also.

      Yes nothing more disheartening when comments go unanswered.. It happens to me too.. You live and learn by the visits you make.. 🙂 I know I may be a couple of days delay in my own answers.. but I always try to reply to those who have taken the time to comment… I have been known to miss the odd one, as the comment panel can throw you sometimes, and this new side panel of notifications I can not get on with.. its not a patch on the old one.. Sending thoughts your way.. Sue
