  • If you reply with different name or different email (different from your previous comments) it needs to be accepted by the moderator (LEA). Once the name/email/IP combination is accepted the next comments will not need moderation.

    Checked SpamHaus for your IP? What ISP are you on, don't you dare say TalkTalk xD

  • It doesn't use your IP.

    I have a dynamic IP that changes about once a day, I've had no issues. So it obviously doesn't do it based on IPs.

    It actually does it on your name + email + website combo, so don't change these and your be ok, as Dr Nick Says.

  • LEA has stated a couple of times now that he's using Akismet. Matt has gone on record a few times stating that they don't track IP address with Akismet although I would be very surprised if it really doesn't.

    On ours we do. Heck, I'll even block for 4 hours if it gets too bad.

  • @drmike, what type of blocking algorithm are you basing your spam on? Are you talking about a white/black list or DNSBL? Or are you using a bayesian filter or similar?

  • 'x' number of positives during a certain time period. (I know we have spammers here so excuse me for not giving specifics.) We're running a modified Spam Assassin setup on a pair of servers. Handles blog, forum, wiki, user signup and email spam. A script tacked onto SA passes along a XML ping (for lack of a better term) to a port on the routers and the software firewalls make their adjustments.

    We have perm blocks of individual address as well as ranges but those are just defined at the routers and they never hit SA.

    Clients can of course mark stuff as spam and that gets sent to SA's learning mechanism. SA does it's defined checks:

    I'm sure Akismet works about the same.

    We have some white listing of course. The library IP address that I'm on, the 8 class C's that we have, etc. but not much more.

    Thanked by 1Xeoncross
  • What @rds100 said was correct. If the comments from the combination of name/email/website were never approved before, it would be in the moderation queue. Nothing to do with Akismet.

  • Are you not running that plugin we talked about previously? (Being vague on purpose.)

  • @drmike -- no I actually removed it, as I need to manually moderate all new commenters. New trolls usually start with a new email address...

  • I am an old troll n_n

  • Better than being an old stick in the mud I guess.
