I received an email tonight from Stef, the Happiness Engineer at Akismet.
Stef wrote, “We’ve made some adjustments that should clear things up moving forward. Please note that any comments that were flagged will still need to be moderated and marked as ‘not spam’ by the blog owner.”
But then Stef wrote something weird. He wrote, “Looking at our logs, it looks like you’re leaving a lot of comments in a very short amount of time, which imitates the behaviour of a spambot. That is why Akismet keeps catching you as spam.”
I’m leaving a lot of comments in a short amount of time? Seriously, Stef?
Finally Stef wrote, “I suggest you to slow down a little bit with the rate of commenting to avoid this inconvenience in the future.”
Slow down, huh? I move too fast. I don’t know, Stef. I’m actually not feelin’ all that groovy.
