Since 2 days ago, I can’t post any comments to some WordPress blog. I can write the comment and post it, but after clicking Submit button, my comment dissapeared without any notification. I got same experience 2 or 3 months ago, so I guess I got trapped by Akismet again.

I don’t know why I got trapped by Akismet. I never used my identity to post any spam comment or sending a spam trackback. I also never post inappropriate comments into blog I’ve been visited.

I’m not a spammer and without any notification from Akismet, I don’t know why I got trapped by Akismet again and how to resolving my identity to escape from Akismet black list.

In my previous experience, Priyadi helped me to white list my identity after got trapped by Akismet in his blog.

Although I think I got trapped by Akismet, my identity still can be used to post some comment to another blog, some of them are using WordPress too. Yesterday I post 2 comments to Budi Rahardjo’s blog without problem.

Is there any chance to bring back my normal identity and to remove my identity from Akismet black list ? Or is there another reason why I can’t post to WordPress blog ?

Update [2007-07-23] : Today I got an email from Akismet Team,

Hi,

It appears that your comments should not be trapped any further but what happened was accidental – could you let me know if not?

    Priyadi help me to find my comment from his akismet black list. Found it and then sanitized by moving my comment from akismet jail into proper (normal) comment.
