No more Akismet scanning

Sorry, but today Akismet caught 7 different dumps of blog spam which had each 400+ lines of href’s to IE7 exploit downloads (the one that launches embedded media player). All that garbage coming in means I won’t be scanning the Akismet catch basin any more. And that means that if you are one of those who get snagged by Akismet, you’re not going to show up in the comments anymore unless you get Akismet to white list you.

If anyone knows how to add a white list to Akismet locally, do let me know. I’d rather include everyone who comments here.


  1. Is there a way to even get white listed at the Akismet level? I looked on their site and found nothing. I know I keep getting nailed by the filter on multiple blogs.
